The most impactful atmospheric carbon removal solution.

Nature has the power to remove gigatons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere today - and healthy soil underpins nature’s ability to do so.

America’s grasslands have the capacity to store a quarter of all US carbon dioxide emissions and deliver impactful co-benefits.

Carbon sequestered amongst deep root systems can remain in the soil for 1,000s of years.

It is the most effective atmospheric carbon removal solution, with incredible impacts far beyond just carbon, including grassland ecology regeneration, soil health, soil water storage, and biodiversity.

How The Program Works

Here’s how the Grassroots Carbon program creates high-quality carbon removal credits with impacts far beyond just carbon.

Third-Parties Measure & Verify Soil Carbon

Soil samples are taken 1 meter deep on regenerative ranches, analyzed in a lab, and verified by independent third-parties.

New Regenerative Practices Draw Carbon Down

Ranchers implement new regenerative practices to improve soil health, using the power of photosynthesis to drive carbon deep underground amongst extensive root systems.

Additional Carbon Impact Certified & Credits Delivered

Carbon credits are certified annually based on the Regenerative Standard, and ranchers are paid for the carbon they store in their healthy soil.

Hear From Our Community of Ranchers

The result of practicing this way is that we increase the quality of water, we increase carrying capacity, we increase forage, decrease bare ground. The carbon sequestration and the carbon markets are just a piece of the bigger picture about the benefits of grazing this way.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does soil carbon storage work? 

Ranchers implement regenerative practices, such as rotating their cattle between paddocks more frequently to allow the forage on grazed land to grow, rest, and recover. This process accelerates photosynthesis which captures carbon and draws it down deep into the soil. If left undisturbed, carbon stays sequestered for thousands of years. Regenerative practices have tremendous benefits below ground, such as regenerating the soil, increasing microbiology, improving water retention, and increasing forage quality and quantity above ground. These changes foster a robust ecosystem and soil that is healthy for plants and animals. 

What standard do you use? 

We follow the Regenerative Standard, overseen by Applied Ecological Institute, which combines best practices, rigor and innovative approaches from well-known standards. It was designed to create more equitable access for land stewards committed to regenerative practices to initiate and participate in carbon storage project opportunities while adhering to rigorous standards for additionality, permanence, and leakage requirements. 

What technology do you use? 

We use remote sensing, meter deep measurements and analysis of the soil cores at 4 depth levels, and machine learning models to monitor, measure, and predict carbon storage.
