Carbon Storage and Sequestration

CFE Carbon sequestration page banner_72185

As custodians of 70% of our landscape, farmers have a key part to play in protecting carbon stored in that landscape, as well as combating climate change by sequestering (absorbing) carbon from the atmosphere.

Vast amounts of carbon are already stored in the soils and plants on our farmland; preventing the release of this carbon into the atmosphere will be crucial to avoid exacerbating climate change.

Grassland, hedgerows, trees and soils on farmland can also absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, offsetting any GHG emissions from farming and contributing to the delivery of net zero agriculture.
