The Recommendations on minimum requirements for high-integrity soil carbon markets in the UK were compiled following a year-long consultation process with leading stakeholders from farming, research, business and policy-making. Four public stakeholder events as well as a series of one-to-one and target stakeholder workshops took place during which the Consortium established the views of these groups about their experience of the farm soil carbon market place. Written input into earlier drafts of the Recommendations was also invited.
Outputs from this process were as follows:
The Minimum Requirements were also compiled with the input and advice from a number of businesses already active in the farm soil carbon and other ecosystems markets in the UK. These included: Agreena, Forest Carbon, Re-generation Earth, Ruumi, Soil Capital, Soil Heroes, Sub 51, Sward and Trinity Agtech.
