How to get involved in carbon markets

Carbon markets offer an opportunity for farmers to receive financial benefits for changing to more environmentally beneficial agricultural practices.

As this is a new market, it is developing rapidly with a wide range of offering through different schemes. Each scheme has different payment structures, verification systems, and rules around data ownership. If you enter into these schemes it is important you have a full understanding of the risks, obligations and rewards to ensure benefits in the long term.

AHDB is currently compiling resources to help you navigate through the vast amount of information and aid you in making decisions. These resources will be available here as they become available.
