When my project's CarbonPlus credits sell, how do I get paid?

Project developers create an account on the Regen Registry platform and provide their bank account or credit card. Once a buyer purchases a credit, a payment is made to the project developer’s account after deducting the appropriate fees.

What are the steps to register a project on Regen Registry and issue CarbonPlus Credits?
  1. Register a Project.
  2. Submit a Project Plan.
  3. Regen Registry reviews the project information for approval.

  6. Sign a Monitoring contract.
  7. Establish a Project Baseline - engage with a Monitor to measure the project baseline.
  8. Implement Land Management - implement the project activity(s).
  9. Monitor Carbon Stock Change - engage a Monitor throughout Crediting Term to measure the change.
  10. Verify - engage with a 3rd party Verifier to validate project data and monitoring.
  11. Issue CarbonPlus Credit - Regen Registry issues CarbonPlus Credits based on positive ecological change after Monitoring rounds.
  12. Get Paid - Sell your credits through Regen Registry.

How is project data managed?

Regen Network aims to provide maximum transparency to CarbonPlus Credit buyers and other stakeholders by making the project documentation, including the Project Plan, Baseline Report, Monitoring Reports, and Verification Reports, publicly available on each Project Page. The data provided as inputs for the Monitoring and Verification process is not made public, but rather the outputs.

In order to provide Project Proponents with data privacy, the Project Plan permits the designation of certain information as “commercially sensitive.” This information will be excluded from the public version of the Project Plan that is made available on the Project Page on Regen Registry.

How are CarbonPlus Credits issued for a project on Regen Registry?

Each CarbonPlus Credit represents 1 ton of CO2e removed from the atmosphere.

The approved Methodology for each Credit Class defines how each underlying indicator, such as Soil Organic Carbon, is measured. Regen Registry issues CarbonPlus Credits based on the difference between the latest monitoring round’s measurements and the measurements during the latest issuance event (or the baseline measurement if this is the first issuance). When there is an increase in carbon stocks between monitoring rounds, a Project Proponent can issue a CarbonPlus Credit.

Example:

If a Baseline measurement = 1000 tons of CO2e and a Monitoring round measurement = 6000 tons of CO2e after uncertainty deductions, Regen Registry will issue 5000 CarbonPlus Credits (representing 5000 tons of CO2e) to the Project Proponent. Since the 5,000 CarbonPlus Credits are subject to Buffer Pool and Permanece Reversal Buffer deductions, the Project Proponent will receive 4000 credits (after 20% deductions).

See the Program Guide for more details.

What types of ecological change can Regen Registry monitor and issue CarbonPlus Credits for?

The CarbonPlus Grasslands Credit focuses on Soil Organic Carbon in grasslands and pastureland.

Other CarbonPlus Credits in development include forestry-based Credits (afforestation, reforestation, avoided deforestation, and agroforestry) and cropland-based Soil Organic Carbon Credits (no-till and low-till, cover crop, and crop rotation).

In the future, Regen Registry will invite Credit designers and Methodology developers to innovate and design new Credits and Methodologies, subject to the approval and peer review processes required by Regen Registry.

Why should I purchase CarbonPlus credits from Regen Registry?

Financing carbon offsets / removals is a core component of climate action for companies and individuals. Climate commitments can help:

  1. Deliver on Climate Action Goals: Contribute to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Paris Agreement by making a direct investment in the low-carbon transition through supporting carbon removal projects.
  2. Make an Impact towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals: Regen Registry projects measure regenerative environmental and social co-benefits that deliver UN Sustainable Development Goal impacts.
  3. Gain Recognition by Civil Society: Companies are motivated to remove their carbon footprint and engage in credible climate impact strategies.
  4. Make Climate Claims: Purchases of carbon offsets / removals that are equivalent to or greater than your carbon footprint can be used to fulfill ‘carbon neutral,’ ‘climate neutral,’ and ‘climate positive’ claims.
  5. Invest Directly in Farmers and Land Stewards: CarbonPlus Credit purchases contribute 75 cents of each dollar directly to Project Proponents to continue and expand their ecologically postive land stewardship.
How is Regen Registry different from other programs that help land stewards receive payments for carbon removals and ecological services?

Regen Registry was designed from the ground-up with a team of farmers, ranchers, and land stewards to address many of the challenges with existing ecological payments programs:

Regen Registry Offers Low Project Costs

  • Low Cost - significantly lower than existing registries, which require consultants to perform manual in-situ measurements; Regen Registry relies on automated remote sensing monitoring to streamline projects costs.
  • Minimal Registry Fees - Regen Registry charges a single fee for credit issuance. There are no account fees, project listing fees, transfer fees, activation fee, etc.
  • Share Upfront Project Costs - Regen Registry supports multi-party ownership of CarbonPlus Credits to enable the sharing of upfront costs between farmers, land owners and/or project developers. Further, through aggregated projects with multiple local farmers, monitoring and verification costs can be further streamlined.

Regen Registry Creates Additional Revenue Streams

  • Premiums - Project Pages on Regen Registry tell the unique story of each land steward and ecological practice. CarbonPlus Credit buyers can explore projects with holistic ecological impacts, including carbon stock measurement, ecological co-benefits, and UN Sustainable Development Goal outcomes. Each project's ecological impact on Regen Registry is unique, which translates into premium CarbonPlus Credits.
  • Simplified Payments - integrated payment platform provides direct real-time payments, including credit card, bank, and mobile.
  • Affordable Brokerage Services - Regen Registry offers affordable, optional brokerage services.

Regen Registry Offers Time Savings

  • Simple Project Registration - Regen Registry's simple registration involves a short intake form and project plan that can be completed in one sitting.
  • Monitoring Services - Regen Registry provides automated monitoring services that require only a minimal set of soil samples.
