Rize's mission is to unlock agriculture's potential to become the largest natural carbon sink in Europe.
We support farmers who commit to climate-friendly practices by generating carbon credits on their behalf. We take care of measuring and reporting soil carbon sequestration and emission reductions, handle the paperwork for certification, and find buyers for the carbon credits they generate. The proceeds from the sale creates an additional revenue stream for farmers, which is proportional to their climate impact.
We support companies that commit to achieving carbon neutrality. We believe that companies that are looking to enhance their neutrality strategy should have the chance to acquire high-quality certified carbon credits. In addition to mitigating climate change, the farming practices supported by our credits improve soil health, sustain biodiversity, and contribute to food quality and security.
The Rize agricultural carbon credit generation process
Step 1. Agricultural carbon removal projects
Farmers join our platform & commit to implementing a range of sustainable practices in the long run. They register all information necessary for the follow-up of the project.
Step 2. Carbon impact verification
Rize measures the amount of carbon stored in agricultural soils & issues carbon credits on behalf of farmers. We issue one carbon credit for each ton of CO2 that has been stored in soils.
We leverage state of the art soil science, satellite imagery, and machine learning to make sure that our carbon credits meet the highest scientific standards, can be generated at scale, and require as little administrative input as possible from farmers.
In accordance with our mission to have the highest possible impact, we plan to make our technology and protocols for soil carbon measurement, reporting, and verification widely available to partner organisations in order to ensure that every farm can engage in and benefit from carbon removal.
Farmers can lower their emissions and sequester carbon in their soils by adopting agricultural practices such as using less mineral fertilizer, planting cover crops, returning crop residues to the soil, and decreasing tillage. These practices also regenerate soil in the long run, with far reaching environmental benefits for biodiversity, water filtration, soil erosion, compaction, contamination, salinity, and for preventing desertification. Sustainable practices also improve farm resilience to climate change and therefore future-proof our food chain.
Once sequestered in the soil, carbon will remain stored as long as sustainable farm practices are maintained.
Rize pilot program
Are you already a farm using climate-friendly practices or currently switching to those practices and want to become a carbon credit pioneer? Join our pilot program to create the first European Credits.
We are looking for carbon pioneers to stand with us in this endeavour. Reach out to know how we can help your organisation remove carbon & promote sustainable agriculture.
