How it Works
Carbonfuture gives businesses easy access to a powerful ecosystem of partners that realize our clean mission: Taking CO₂ out of the atmosphere and putting carbon back into the soil. Let that sink in for a moment.
To reach the Paris goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°C, hundreds of gigatons of CO₂ must be removed from the atmosphere in the coming decades - in addition to massive emission reductions. In the course of the 21st century we must remove and safely store roughly as much CO₂ from the atmosphere as we emit, says the IPCC.
Reverse the flow of greenhouse gases: Down and not up. Reverse the flow of money: Reward carbon sinks and not polluters. This is the basis of the carbon sink economy.
What is a Carbon Sink?
In the natural carbon cycle carbon is exchanged between the atmosphere, biosphere, the ocean and land mass. Carbon (in form of CO₂ or methane) in the atmosphere heats the planet, sequestered carbon in the soil or in the sea doesn't.
Nature-based Carbon Sinks?
Currently, there are three types of nature-based mature, scalable, scientifically backed-up carbon sink technologies: Afforestation, Soil Organic Carbon and Biochar.
Carbonfuture Carbon Sink Credit
Carbonfuture Carbon Sink Credits are financing portfolios of sinks. Each physical sink (e.g. a big bag of biochar applied to the soil on a specific farm) is documented and securitised in an individual "cf-certificate”.
Join the Carbon Sink Economy
Carbonfuture is the most advanced biochar carbon sink platform.
We currently offer certified sinks based on biochar applications in
Europe and California.
Join us on our global mission.
Why we are different
We created Carbonfuture to address these issues and to provide the best-in-class compensation standard.
True carbon sinks
We only support true
Independent sink certification
We rely on independent sink certification with scientifically substantiated and conservative quantification
We fully consider the life-cycle of sinks, including production emissions and explicit accounting of the sink duration
Built on Blockchain
We document the sinks end-to-end on a blockchain based distributed ledger platform
Platform economy approach
We follow a platform economy approach and make the framework interoperable and available to a wide range of participants
