Purchase carbon credits that are good for humans, animals, and the planet.

restaurant FOOD PROCUREMENT CREDITS
We work with institutions like schools, hospitals, and retirement homes to implement plant-based menus and quantify the avoided upstream emissions. We streamline the measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) process, enabling institutions to receive verified carbon credits. Credit sales finance the up-front project costs, and provide an incentive to continue eating climate-friendly foods.
accessibility CO-BENEFITS
In addition to their environmental impact, our food procurement credits help provide access to healthy and affordable plant-based foods.

OUR RESEARCH

Our team leverages a background in economics, mathematics, and data science to calculate the environmental impact of food.

First and foremost, we’re committed to scientific rigor and transparency. For every credit we sell, we’ll provide a clear explanation of our methodology and show you all of the data that went into the carbon accounting.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do you calculate and verify emission reductions from food procurement?

keyboard_arrow_down

Climate Refarm uses publicly available, peer-reviewed life cycle assessments (LCAs) of food products to determine their environmental impact. Our methodology requires that emission factors be specific to the geographic region and farming practices where a food was produced. We also account for leakage by modeling the market effects of reduced demand for animal products.

How do you ensure additionality?

keyboard_arrow_down

Institutions can only receive carbon credits for food procurement if they demonstrate a key financial or technical barrier to shifting their practices, such as the need for staff training, outside culinary expertise, administrative costs, or higher prices for plant-based substitutes.

Who verifies your carbon credits?

keyboard_arrow_down

All of our methodologies and credits will be verified through independent, third-party carbon registries. We're working through the methodology approval process with them now.

Do you take a cut of the carbon credit sales?

keyboard_arrow_down

We give 75% of each credit sale to the institution, and use the remaining 25% to cover our R&D and operational costs.

When will your methodologies be ready?

keyboard_arrow_down

For plant-based food procurement, we're working through the methodology approval process with carbon registries right now, and expect to launch pilot projects in Q4 2022.
