Climate Refarm makes it easy to adopt climate-friendly menus.

Climate Refarm helps schools, hospitals, company cafeterias, and other food providers move towards sustainable, plant-based menus, all while compensating them for their efforts.

Our carbon crediting methodology allows us to quantify the avoided emissions achieved through sustainable food procurement. By tapping into the rapidly growing voluntary carbon market, we are able to pay institutions for these environmental benefits.

In addition, we work with a network of plant-based chefs, menu specialists, and nutritionists to help design new menus and source ingredients at no charge to your organization.


Step 1
We collect historical food procurement data to establish a baseline scenario.
Step 2
Our team and culinary partner organizations work with you to develop new menu ideas.
Step 3
Using our crediting methodology, we calculate avoided emissions and facilitate the verification process with a 3rd party carbon registry.
Step 4
We find a buyer for your carbon credits and send you the carbon revenue.


Institutional food procurement is a powerful lever for systemic change.

Every meal you serve is a vote for the future of our food system.

What kinds of institutions are eligible for carbon crediting?


Any institution that makes recurring food procurement decisions for its customers or members may be eligible. For example, this includes (but is not limited to) K-12 schools, universities, hospitals, corporate cafeterias, and retirement homes.

How much carbon revenue can my organization earn?


The carbon revenue you would receive varies based on the types and amounts of animal products that you purchase now, where your food is produced, and the scope of the changes you make to your menu. Please contact our team at to discuss the specifics of your situation!

When will your methodology be ready?


We're currently working through the methodology approval process with major carbon registries and expect to launch pilot projects in 2023.
