Yard Stick measures soil carbon. Scientists and farmers alike know that climate-friendly agricultural practices have the potential to remove atmospheric CO2 at gigaton/year scale. When these practices are adopted, more carbon is stored in soils, improving soil health and fighting climate change. But significant measurement challenges have held soil carbon efforts back - until now. By reducing the cost of soil carbon measurement by 90%+, Yard Stick will dramatically expand the opportunities for evidence-based regenerative practices to simultaneously improve ecosystem health, increase farmer income, and combat climate change.
Our mission is to scale high-quality carbon credit supply through digital and data-driven project design and MRV to preserve and restore natural resources and accelerate clean technology. Product: We offer an integrated package of software, hardware and AI tools to project developers, clean-tech companies, governments and organizations. This enables them to design carbon projects and measure, monitor, report and control outcomes in near real-time based on comprehensive data collection and analysis directly from the project site. All features are based on CDM methodologies and are suitable for the verification of carbon credits with VERRA, Gold Standard and other agencies. We have meanwhile exciting partners also on the customer side (private equity fund portfolio companies, FinCo Fuel, one of Europes leading breweries, banks etc.) but are mainly focused on the supply side. We have a project in Congo and Ghana (CDM and RegenAg), plus Tanzania in the area of Nature Based (Mangroves). Here we are working with the ZMT Leipzig and Prof. Dr. Martin Zimmer (mangrove researcher) on our own, more precise methodology.
natcap is a nature intelligence startup founded at Oxford University. We builds data products for companies & financial institutions in the food & agriculture sector so they can understand their interactions with nature. We are a team of environmental scientists, engineers, and operators. Our data enables customers to understand their exposure to nature risk, comply with regulations, and improve their environmental impact. We provide high-precision, farm-level intelligence across nature dependencies (e.g. water supply, pollination, soil quality) and impacts (e.g. fertilisers, pesticides, land-use change). We also assess exposure to physical risks (e.g. soil erosion, floods, extreme temperatures) and evaluate the landscape they operate in (e.g. biodiversity integrity, ecosystem condition). To do this, we utilise a wide variety of data sources: satellite imagery, remote sensing, and nature databases on elements like soil samples and biodiversity.
