Indigo launches The Terraton Initiative™ to remove one trillion tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere

June 12, 2019 | Indigo Agriculture
  At record levels of 415 parts per million (ppm), the Earth’s atmosphere contains one trillion tons (one teraton) more carbon dioxide today than it did prior to the Industrial Revolution. Increasing the carbon levels in agricultural soils from today’s levels of approximately 1% back to native levels of nearly 3% would sequester the same one trillion tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. There are proven methods, known as regenerative practices, for increasing soil carbon concentration, which are employed by many farmers today. Storing atmospheric carbon dioxide in agricultural soils represents the most scalable, immediate, and affordable action that we can take to address climate change. The Terraton Initiative includes: (1) Indigo Carbon, a carbon market providing incentives to growers to implement regenerative farming practices at scale; (2) The Terraton Experiment, a large, real-time, open-source soil carbon experiment; (3) The Terraton Challenge to encourage technological innovation; (4) and the launch of The Carbon Cup to inspire grower competition and innovation. Boston, Massachusetts, June 12, 2019 — Indigo Agriculture, a company dedicated to harnessing nature to help farmers sustainably feed the planet, announces the launch of The Terraton Initiative™ to accelerate carbon sequestration at an unprecedented scale. For the first time in human history, atmospheric carbon dioxide has exceeded 415ppm, representing an increase of one trillion tons – or, a teraton – of atmospheric carbon dioxide since pre-industrial levels of 280ppm. Utilizing the potential of agricultural soils, The Terraton Initiative seeks to remove one trillion tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.  With Indigo’s integrated approach to agriculture, and partnerships with representatives from across the value chain, The Terraton Initiative will unlock the most scalable, immediate, and affordable opportunity to address climate change that exists today.
