UK Farm Soil Carbon Code Stakeholder Workshop

November 16, 15.00-17.00

The process of developing a UK Farm Soil Carbon Code has been underway since September 2021 with core funding from the Environment Agency’s Investment Readiness Fund, led by Farming Wildlife Advisory Group as part of a consortium including the Sustainable Soils Alliance, the Soil Association and internationally recognised carbon market experts and soil scientists.

This workshop will provide an opportunity for all stakeholders to find out more about the progress on the Code’s creation, to discuss some of the scientific and practical issues at stake and give feedback on the Code programme as currently outlined.

The event will address the following:

  • Why do we need a UK Farm Soil Carbon Code?
  • Progress on Code development.
  • Update on research projects, pilots etc.
  • The need to blend public and private finance.
  • The alignment of different nature-based carbon codes (existing and proposed).
  • Fundraising to expand code development.

This is the second in a series of consultative workshops that will run throughout the Code’s development. It is open to all, but will be of particular interest to farmer groups, investors, policy-makers and anyone running their own soil carbon sequestration and monetisation projects.
