As the United States embarks on a path towards net-zero carbon emissions, many entities are considering agriculture-based carbon offsets to reach their net-zero emissions goals. However, the measurement of carbon uptake in soil is not documented in a standardized way in current offset markets, and large questions remain about incentives, additionality, permanence, and monitoring and verification.

Owen Helwett, Chief Technical Officer, joins a panel to discuss the ability of the private sector to deliver meaningful agricultural soil carbon offsets in the United States, the status of markets around soil carbon, and whether and/or what type of government policy might improve outcomes.
