Soil carbon constitutes the largest terrestrial carbon pool and makes soils integral to our planet's carbon cycling


Introducing Forward Financing of Climate Carbon Projects

Soil organic carbon (SOC) stands as the residue of organic material left in the soil subsequent to the partial breakdown by living organisms. It plays a pivotal role in the global carbon cycle, moving through the atmosphere, vegetation, soil, rivers, and oceans. SOC serves as the primary constituent of soil organic matter (SOM), acting as the lifeblood of soil. SOM is indispensable for various soil functions, such as maintaining soil structure stability, facilitating the retention and release of plant nutrients, and enabling water infiltration and storage.

Caring for these soils and preserving the SOC they contain can be achieved through sustainable soil management, including mulching, planting cover crops, judicious fertilization and moderate irrigation. Soils serve as the largest repository of terrestrial organic carbon, with the amount of SOC held varying based on local geological characteristics, climate, land use practices, and other environmental factors.
