Agriculture is both the single largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions historically and the most significant carbon drawdown mechanism available to us today. Regen.network brings together disparate actors across sectors and aligns their interests toward regeneration. The most important outcome of this project is a livable planet.
From the first ecosystem service assessment in 1997 until the 2011 assessment, environmental damage resulted in a loss of $23 trillion in ecosystem services
The theoretical maximum sequestration capacity of soils and biomass is estimated at 320 billion tons, far more than is necessary to reverse climate change.
Soils currently hold 2.5 billion tons of carbon - 5% of the earth's total. Living biomass and dead detritus hold 569 million tons - 1.2%. And the atmosphere holds 780 billion tons - 1.5%
From farm to plate, our food system is responsible for a staggering 44 to 57 percent of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions
There are nearly 500 million family farms on this planet, producing 80% of the world’s food. Regen.network works with farmers to increase their productivity and make these important members of our community the centerpiece in the regeneration of the planet.
The natural products industry in particular and food industry in general are seeing that consumers are demanding more transparency and responsibility from their brands. The trend toward and beyond organic and fair trade products continues. Regen.network offers industry a platform upon which they can start to verify their ecological contributions and invest in planetary regeneration.
Consumers are demanding transparency and a higher level of ecological responsibility than ever before. The regen.network platform builds the ground upon which countless applications based on verified ecological outcomes can be built, so that, among other things, consumers have access to clear and non-centralized data about the products they purchase.
We’re working with research institutions around the world to create practical applications and verification algorithms from the robust science behind climate change and ecological agriculture. This project aims to draw from and contribute to the incredible body of knowledge in these areas.
The non-profit sector has been incredibly important in bringing forth legislation and global awareness of the challenges we face around global climate change. Regen.network teams with non-profits to help them deeply understand where the leverage points for change really are. For the first time, with Verified Ecological Outcomes the non-profit sector can invest directly into verified regeneration.
Over 160 countries have ratified the Paris Climate Accord and committed to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and the sequestration of carbon. Regen.network offers each of these countries a decentralized, transparent platform upon which they can monitor verified ecological outcomes of their efforts and make those records available to the public.
