Buy from the Bayer Carbon Program

Purchase Nori Regenerative Tonnes sourced specifically from farmers enrolled in the Bayer Carbon Program.

Support Regenerative Agriculture, Remove Carbon from the Atmosphere

All Nori Regenerative Tonnes™ are third-party verified and quantified — and come with a certificate that transparently tracks your specific carbon removal project. When you purchase on this page, you’re buying credits sourced from the Bayer Carbon Program.

Overview of the Bayer Carbon Program

The Bayer Carbon Program, delivered through ForGround by Bayer, enables farmers to enroll in and get paid for implementing regenerative agriculture practices — such as practices that sequester carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it in the soil.

The farmers who enroll in the program are stewards of their land and understand the importance of soil health and preserving their acres for future generations.

Carbon Program Participants, Practices, and Benefits

The majority of farmers participating in the Bayer Carbon Program farm in the Midwest of the United States. They plant corn, soybeans and/or wheat in a rotation and implement regenerative agriculture practices like no-till, strip-till and/or cover crops on enrolled fields. Their crops then go on to feed communities in the US and around the world. Participating farmers are rewarded financially for their carbon-storing practices, and they can also see benefits in their soil since these practices support soil health, reduce erosion, and increase soil water availability.

What are Regenerative Tonnes?

Each Regenerative Tonne represents approximately 1 tonne of carbon removed from the atmosphere and stored in the soil for 10+ years.

Key Details:

  • Credits are third-party quantified and verified, with re-verification every 3 years
  • Immediate climate impact with co-benefits like improved erosion and drought resistance, soil biodiversity, and more
  • Unique certificate tracing back to your carbon removal project

Removing Carbon

Regenerative Tonnes support farming practices that remove excess CO2 from the atmosphere, with the potential to sequester hundreds of millions of tonnes of CO2 every year.

Restoring Soils

Regenerative agriculture supports various facets of soil restoration such as improving soil structure, soil biodiversity, and nutrient density in food production.

Stabilizing Climates

Carbon removal via regenerative agriculture and other available solutions can mitigate peak warming and avoid environmental tipping points to maintain Earth’s ecological balance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Regenerative Tonne?

The Nori Regenerative Tonne is a carbon removal credit representing approximately one tonne of carbon removed from the atmosphere and stored for at least ten years via regenerative farming practices. Each credit is third-party quantified and verified, ensuring credible climate impact. The Bayer Carbon Program credits are quantified using the Soil Metrics Model and are verified by NSF.

Each Regenerative Tonne:

  • Supports climate impact with co-benefits like improved soil biodiversity
  • Undergoes third-party verification and quantification before being listed, with re-verification every 3 years
  • Is created in accordance with Nori’s peer-reviewed Croplands Methodology
  • Comes with a unique certificate that contains project details
Why should I buy Regenerative Tonnes?

Each purchase supports the adoption of regenerative agriculture practices and the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere — benefitting both farmers and the planet.

For farmers:

  • Farmers can get paid for their regenerative agriculture practices and can also experience other benefits like supporting soil health and increased yield potential and productivity. Collectively, these benefits can help support the economic and social well-being of farmers and their communities.

For the planet, and all of us living on it:

  • Regenerative Tonnes  help to drive positive climate impact  by supporting the farmers removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, supporting soil health, enhancing biodiversity, and contributing to other co-benefits of regenerative farming. These practices can help mitigate climate change and improve food systems.

As an individual, you aren’t responsible for causing the climate crisis but you do have the power to be part of the solution. Collectively, we need to remove between 5 and 10 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere each year by 2050 to reach global climate mitigation targets. We need all hands on deck to make it happen, and every tonne counts.

How much will I pay for each Regenerative Tonne?

How many Regenerative Tonnes can I buy?

You can buy anywhere from 1 to 500 Nori Regenerative Tonnes. For larger purchases, please get in touch with our sales team here.

Not sure how many to buy? Every tonne makes an impact.

While some people choose to buy based on a set budget, others prefer to buy to help address their emissions.

Some context: The average* person in the US emits approximately 16.5 tonnes of CO2 each year. In Germany, the average is 10 tonnes/year. In Canada it’s 13.2 tonnes/year and in Brazil it’s 2.2 tonnes/year. (See other countries here.) The typical passenger vehicle emits approximately 4.6 tonnes of CO2/year.

Note: Since emissions from the burning of fossil fuels stay in the atmosphere for much longer than ten years, purchasing Regenerative Tonnes can’t fully neutralize emissions. But by driving immediate impact, they can help us avoid key environmental tipping points and buy us more time to scale up more permanent forms of carbon removal.

Where does my money go when I buy Regenerative Tonnes from the Bayer Carbon Program?

For each Regenerative Tonne purchased at $25 each:

  • $20 goes to Bayer, which supports Bayer in offering The Bayer Carbon Program and paying farmers for implementing regenerative farming practices.  
  • $5 goes to Nori and its partners (including Bayer) to keep the marketplace running.

Who are the farmers and how do they benefit?

The majority of farmers participating in the Bayer Carbon Program live in the Midwest of the United States. They plant corn, soybeans and/or wheat in a rotation and implement regenerative agriculture practices like no-till, strip-till and/or cover crops on enrolled fields. These crops then go on to feed communities in the US and around the world. Participating farmers are rewarded financially for their carbon-storing practices and often see an improvement in soil quality on their farms as well as increased yield and productivity.

How can we be sure the farmers who receive payments from the Bayer Carbon Program actually implement regenerative practices?

Under the Bayer Carbon Program, payment to participating farmers is subject to verification by Bayer and an independent third-party verifier that the selected practices have been performed and, for historical payments, that carbon assets have been generated.

How much carbon dioxide is sequestered for each Regenerative Tonne purchased?

Each Nori Regenerative Tonne represents approximately one tonne of carbon removed from the atmosphere and stored for at least ten years via regenerative farming practices.

For context: The average* person in the US emits approximately 16.5 tonnes of CO2 each year. In Germany, the average is 10 tonnes/year. In Canada it’s 13.2 tonnes/year and in Brazil it’s 2.2 tonnes/year in Brazil. (See other countries here.)

The typical passenger vehicle emits approximately 4.6 tonnes of CO2/year.

How does regenerative agriculture work as a climate solution?
  • Regenerative agriculture has the potential to sequester hundreds of millions of tonnes of CO2 each year. It’s 1 of the top 4 ways we can achieve net emissions reductions by 2030. (IPCC)
  • Carbon removal now, via regenerative agriculture and other available solutions, can mitigate peak warming and avoid environmental tipping points to maintain Earth’s ecological balance

The adoption of regenerative agriculture practices can lead to various benefits for farmers and the climate, such as:

  • Farmers often see yield increases and improved productivity on their land
  • Improved social and economic well-being for farmers and their communities
  • Improved soil health
  • Preservation and restoration of biodiversity
  • Water conservation  
  • Mitigation of climate change
