Can soil save the planet?

Can soil save the planet?

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

in partnership with Capgemini

This is a digital-only ThinkIn.

Nature-based solutions to the climate crisis are the best. For instance, studies show that a slight increase in average soil carbon uptake could slow, or even halt, global warming. But we are a long way from making that happen. So how do we optimise these solutions, measure their effectiveness and incentivise the investment needed to deploy them at planetary scale? Where are science, tech and nature converging to produce real climate solutions? Do these solutions include offsets that actually work? What are the roles of hardware, software and big data in harnessing natural processes to accelerate net zero?

This ThinkIn is part of Tortoise’s Accelerating Net Zero coalition. The initiative brings together our members and a network of organisations across a programme of ThinkIns and journalism devoted to accelerating progress towards Net Zero.
