Carbon Farming As A Service

We transition farmers to a low-emission economy and is essential for the agricultural and forestry industry to meet its carbon reduction targets in every given country

We monitor soil micro and macronutrients on a daily basis. Soil tests for farmers are delivered within a day. Every farmer requires to know the status of their soil, and water on a regular basis.

We use low-orbiting satellites to monitor the Agricultural and forest lands

Earth Observation of Agricultural land

We capture carbon in the atmosphere from the land and sea forests

We transition farmers to regenerative practices

soil tests
restore soils

we calculate the amount of carbon the farm is likely to reduce over a period of 25 years. We provide upfront estimates of the $$$$ equivalent to being gained by the farmers.

What is Carbon Tax exactly?

The carbon tax is a new tax in response to climate change, which is aimed at reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in a sustainable, cost-effective and affordable manner. Carbon Tax gives effect to the polluter-pays-principle and helps to ensure that firms and consumers take the negative adverse costs (externalities) of climate change into account in their future production, consumption, and investment decisions.

Who is the Carbon Tax for? Farmers included?

The Carbon Tax in South Africa is imposed on farmers that operate emissions generation facilities at a combined installed capacity equal to or above the carbon tax threshold.

How is the Carbon Tax liability calculated in South Africa?

The first phase has a carbon tax rate of R120 per ton of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions. This rate will increase annually by inflation plus 2 percent until 2022, and annually by inflation thereafter. Significant industry-specific tax-free emissions allowances ranging from 60 percent to 95 percent will result in a modest net carbon tax rate ranging from R6 to R48 per ton of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions to provide current emitters time to transition their operations to cleaner technologies through investments in energy efficiency, renewables, and other low-carbon measures.
