Through sequestration, soil plays a pivotal role in mitigating climate change. Improved agricultural practices that promote soil sequestration can help reverse climate change while improving the livelihoods of farmers. However, there is currently no commonly used business standard or approach for measuring carbon in soil.
There are many emerging approaches, and more are on the way. So which current approaches can be used by companies today? In this webinar, we discussed current practices, the opportunities for standardised approaches, and the potential positive outcomes in the race to net zero.
