Agricarbon is a soil carbon measurement company that samples agricultural soil and natural landscapes and measures their carbon content to verify carbon removals. Agricarbon’s carbon data serves as a vital foundation for a trusted and impactful carbon marketplace for project developers, farmers, and corporates, including Scope 3 decarbonisation for agriculture, food, beverage, fibre, biofuel, finance, and insurance industries and the nature-based solutions sector of voluntary carbon markets. The company is operational across Europe and is deploying its recent Series A toward further expansion in North America (first client projects already underway). Already, Agricarbon has recorded more than 4 million tonnes of organic carbon held in clients' soils today (equivalent to >14.5 million tonnes of CO2), with a carbon removal potential of over 3,500,000 tonnes of CO2 by 2030.
