Rabo Carbon Bank
Rabobank, Column P
|The Carbon Bank will enable transitioning to regenerative carbon farming, the societal position and earning capacity of farmers will improve. In our matchmaker role, we translate sequestered carbon into tradable units: so-called carbon credits. We offer these high-quality nature based credits to corporates and organizations that we already have the privilege of servicing, that share a net zero emissions ambition and are already demonstrating efforts to reduce and prevent carbon emissions. Farmers will become more resilient, both economically and ecologically. Purpose-driven organizations and corporates are supported in their aspirations to lower their emission levels. And our planet will become a better place to live, for us and generations to come.|

The objective of this coalition is to support countries who have indicated a desire to repurpose their forms of public agricultural support by helping them a) identify which public support measures are exacerbating climate, environmental, and development challenges, and b) redesign these measures, not only to ‘do no harm’ but to help improve food and nutrition security, strengthen the soil and water quality, increase biodiversity, build resilience, and mitigate climate change.
