Carbon marketplace

TECH company Trimble has launched a 'carbon marketplace' which it claims will connect and aggregate verified data across the potato supply chain and help meet net zero commitments. 

Trimble’s Connected Climate Exchange creates a streamlined process for aggregating data across farm organisations and verifying this data for emissions reductions and removals buyers in one place. 

Director Darren Howie said: “Farmers have long struggled to comprehensively report and tell their sustainability story in quantifiable and verifiable terms. They need a technology solution that brings greater value and helps bring structure to disconnected data.” 

While many carbon programs work by identifying a specific practice to implement and search for farms, Trimble is partnering with agronomy-focused, enterprise agriculture companies to optimise interventions at the farm level, he said.

The Trimble Connected Climate Exchange works with the company's Ag Software and other third-party farm management tools to centrally manage sustainability projects and customers, perform calculations to report on carbon emissions, reductions and removals, provide reporting and visualization to sustainability impacts, calculate payments where applicable and generate cross-sector supply chain insights.
