Existing Codes

Soil carbon protocols exist elsewhere in the world but cannot be applied effectively to UK soils.  As part of the Code development, the consortium will review these protocols and look for opportunities to combine and adapt them for UK use.  The list of protocols we under consideration are:

CAR

VERRA 1

VERRA 2

Gold Standard

Nori

Baker Institute

GSOC from FAO

Australian Soil Carbon Quantification

ISO 14064-2 (being used by Soil Capital in trial with Cool Farm Tool)

The SSA is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee. We decided not to set up a charity because that would limit some activities such as campaigning on government policies. With a not-for-profit company the directors don’t benefit from profits and money raised is spent on company aims.
