Why soil organic carbon (SOC)?

Plants absorb and convert atmospheric CO2  into organic matter through a process called carbon fixation.

  • Soil can sink COthrough a process called “Carbon Sequestration”, which involves storing carbon in the soil for a long period of time.
  • C14 focuses on soil carbon project development because:
    • Better carbon storage capacity:
      • Soil has the potential and capacity more than plants to store large amounts of carbon underground.
    • Longer permanence:
      • Carbon stored in soil can remain there for hundreds or even thousands of years. This makes soil an effective long-term solution for reducing atmospheric CO2 levels.
    • Nature-based process:
      • Carbon sequestration in soil is a natural process that occurs through the actions of plants, microbes, and other organisms.
      • It just makes business & environmental sense.
