Carbon is set to become an increasingly important revenue stream for farmers over the coming years.
Whether it being paid to off-set carbon emissions on behalf of somebody else or reducing your own on-farm emissions, the possibilities seem endless.
But it is a fledging market and it can be confusing – and often daunting
So how do you make money from carbon – what are the opportunities and how do you avoid the pitfalls?
To answer these questions and more, we are joined by four experts:

  • Emily Norton is head of rural research, energy & projects at farm business consultants and land agency Savills
  • Rory Geldard is commercial manager for NRM, part of Cawood, the independent soil testing laboratory
  • David McCulloch is head of CarbonStore at forestry management company Tilhill
  • Juan Palomares, managing director for Trinity Natural Capital Markets
