Creating an Agricultural Carbon Project with Verra
CIBO’s program has been registered by Verra under the title “The CIBO Initiative for Scaling Regenerative Agriculture.” For the first time, a company looking to bring a registered carbon program to their growers or stakeholder groups in the U.S. now has a project infrastructure that they can leverage through Verra carbon registry or as a reference design for their own project. Verified carbon units from CIBO’s VM 0042 project may be issued for the greenhouse gas emission reductions and removals associated with grain-based feed, food, or fuel products derived from corn, soy, or wheat grown by growers in North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, or Kentucky who are participating in CIBO’s carbon offset project under the Verified Carbon Standard titled “CIBO INITIATIVE FOR SCALING REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE.”Learn More

“We are excited to have achieved this milestone which will further accelerate the transition to regenerative agriculture. Once the project is reviewed and accepted by the team at Verra and an independent verification body, it will be made available to support our partners with development of their own carbon programs and climate commitments.”

“It’s encouraging to see the CIBO Initiative for Scaling Regenerative Agriculture project enter the validation phase under VM0042 Methodology for Improved Agricultural Land Management. Once validated, the project will create a pathway for growers in the United States to generate verifiable, transparent, and robust carbon reduction and sequestration credits, and demonstrate the key role the U.S. agricultural sector can play in tackling climate change.”
CIBO Partners can use the Project as a Carbon Project Blueprint
CIBO’s Verra project was designed from the ground up to support enterprises throughout the food and agriculture value chain, including: CPGs, input companies, grain and commodities companies, ethanol producers, and others with agricultural commodities in their customer base or supply chain.
The project helps provide financial and technical support to U.S. commodity crop growers resulting in GHG reductions, GHG removals, and improved land resiliency for regenerative agriculture practices including cover crop adoption, reduced tillage and reduced nitrogen.Learn More
