eAgronom Reaches 1.5 Million Hectares Milestone in Boost to Sustainable Farming
Wednesday, December 13, 2023
Small and large farms across Europe and Africa are actively benefiting from the company’s Carbon Credit program and sophisticated soil health improvement measures
eAgronom, the agriculture-focused climate tech company helping farmers adopt sustainable practices for the health of their farms and the planet, has achieved the major milestone of onboarding 1.5 million hectares of farmland onto its farm management and carbon offsetting programs. This achievement follows a concentrated integration effort across Spain, Poland, and the Baltics in Europe, and in Kenya and Rwanda in Africa. In total, eAgronom has onboarded these hectares in 12 countries and in collaboration with over 2,500 farmers.
This milestone indicates not only rapid growth since the company’s founding in 2016 but concentrated efforts to foster long-term partnerships with farmers. These farmers are active collaborators in the field trials that enhance eAgronom’s work to develop and implement environmentally-friendly practices that simultaneously boost profits. The company is continually tailoring its offsetting and insetting efforts to make sure farmers are incentivised to adopt sustainable practices that improve soil health, reduce input costs, and expand access to better financing options.
Global and regional climate offsetting targets simply cannot be achieved without using soil-based carbon removal. Combined with sustainable lending options, eAgronom’s trustworthy and transparent credits and soil improvement measures have a direct financial benefit to farms large and small. eAgronom additionally provides tools like satellites, telematics, and soil sampling to its partner farms, who in turn report seasonal activities through the company’s software platform.
Not all carbon subsidy programs, however, are created equal. eAgronom’s flagship Carbon Program is designed to provide partner farmers with maximum transparency while helping them sequester carbon within their soil. It follows the strictest development principles and methodology as laid out by the greenhouse gas crediting program Verra, which will officially verify and register eAgronom early next year.
Only companies that provide high-quality carbon credits that make a discernible impact in the fight against climate change receive Verra’s verification. To date, eAgronom’s partner farms have stored 400,000 tCO2 p.a., which is roughly equivalent to the annual carbon emissions of 85,000 people. Thus, in celebrating reaching the 1.5 million hectare milestone as it relates to its Carbon Program, eAgronom has not only achieved a quantitative goal but a qualitative one too.
Robin Saluoks, co-founder and CEO of eAgronom, said: “We have reached 1.5 million hectares, which is an achievement by any measure but still just the first phase. We’re among the largest carbon farming platforms in the world and we’re determined to become the premiere European solution and continue innovating regenerative farming on multiple levels. We’re already reviewing our long-term growth targets since the 2023 annual target was achieved already in November. This is major progress, and that’s fantastic for the environment and our collective future”
eAgronom aims to reach its 4.1 million hectare target by 2025, at which point it will additionally offer a unique Europe-wide solution and begin targeting specific regions in the eastern and southern regions of the African continent.
