Climate protection and CO₂ reduction along the entire value chain

Reducing as many greenhouse gas emissions as possible will be a key task for the economy in the coming years and decades. This responsibility also falls to the food sector and its agricultural supply chains.

By adapting agricultural practices, greenhouse gases can be reduced and CO2 can be sequestered from the atmosphere in the long term. At the same time, supply chains become more resilient to the negative impacts of climate change. This makes insetting a compelling measure from a business perspective as well.

Insetting is therefore a very credible and authentic method of assuming corporate responsibility. Soil & More Impacts does not trade in insetting or CO2 certificates itself. We support farms and companies in finding a balance together.

Here's how
  • Analyse potential: Which companies and measures are suitable for insetting?
  • Plan and implement CO2-binding measures, including soil sampling.
  • Continuous evaluation: Ongoing support for the projects, including monitoring and sampling.
  • Check eligibility for compensation
  • Estimate costs and monetary equivalent

"We have been climate neutral since 2014 through climate compensation projects with German organic farms. By 2020 this enabled us to offset over 14,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions in our own value chain."
