Gradable Carbon Program Gives Growers Control of Credits

Successful Farming
February 23, 2021

Farm­ers who choose to use the Grad­able Car­bon car­bon stor­age plat­form will have free­dom and flex­i­bil­i­ty over when and where car­bon cred­its are stored.

Grad­able Car­bon – a part of Farm­ers Busi­ness Net­work (FBN) – was launched Feb. 22.

We believe the best way to cre­ate mean­ing­ful, long-term change is to pro­vide farm­ers with the choice and pow­er to par­tic­i­pate in the car­bon mar­ket on their own terms,” Grad­able pres­i­dent and chief exec­u­tive Devin Lam­mers said in a press release. “Grad­able Car­bon cre­ates a win-win propo­si­tion that incen­tivizes farm­ers while giv­ing them more con­trol over their car­bon cred­its, enabling them to take advan­tage of the many new oppor­tu­ni­ties that reward regen­er­a­tive practices.”

By par­tic­i­pat­ing in Grad­able Car­bon, farm­ers are not locked into a sin­gle car­bon off­set mar­ket, Lam­mers says. The com­pa­ny will gen­er­ate car­bon cred­its on behalf of farm­ers, and farm­ers can choose to either sell those cred­its, or bank them for sell­ing lat­er, bet­ting on the pos­si­bil­i­ty that prices paid for car­bon off­sets will increase over time, Lam­mers says.

We need to find a way for farm­ers to adopt any pro­gram that gives them upside,” Lam­mers told Suc­cess­ful Farm­ing mag­a­zine in an inter­view.  “If you believe there is upside on the car­bon mar­kets as the mar­kets change, you will ben­e­fit from price appre­ci­a­tion over time.”
