Soil.is will be a tool to help landowners and companies to evaluate the viability of their land for implementing impactful carbon sequestration projects. Navigating the realm of nature-based solutions can seem overwhelming, which is why Soil.is wants to follow a comprehensive approach that covers everything from diagnostics to securing funding. The aim is to empower individuals with the knowledge and tools to maximize their land assets and contribute to decarbonizing their businesses.
Mitigating the effects of climate change and maintaining a stable global climate depends heavily on our carbon dynamics. Through Soil.is, EGIS is taking proactive steps to address this challenge. Many businesses have already joined them in the journey towards a more sustainable future.
Degraded Land Reimagined.
Over 1,000 billion hectares of land worldwide are currently degraded. We can harness their potential to absorb carbon and combat climate change by revitalizing these lands.
Approximately 40 billion tonnes of CO2 are released globally each year. Carbon sequestration projects play a crucial role in counteracting this trend.
Healthy soils can store more water, reduce erosion, and support diverse ecosystems. Focusing on carbon sequestration fosters sustainable land management practices and resilient ecosystems for future generations.
EGIS, a leading global consulting firm focusing on sustainability, has collaborated with Vizzuality to develop Soil.is, an initiative to enable informed decisions on carbon sequestration and sustainable land use. Soil.is will serve as a centralized environment for stakeholders, facilitating data collection, diagnostics, decision-making, and project support to drive effective carbon sequestration initiatives.Vizzuality was involved in shaping the Soil.is vision, particularly focusing on the development of its diagnostic tool functionality.
The Vizzuality team offered scientific and technical guidance to ensure the creation of a Minimum Viable Product that would be both impactful and feasible.
Our approach was informed by a comprehensive analysis that drew insights from multiple sources, including documents shared by Soil.is, collaborative sessions with the Soil.is team, and our own expertise in similar projects. This collaborative effort allowed us to provide informed recommendations that were tailored to the project's objectives and requirements. By merging our technical insights with Soil.is's vision, we aimed to lay the groundwork for a tool that holds the potential to drive positive change in the realm of carbon sequestration and environmental sustainability.
In this collaborative journey with Egis, we delved into the intricate world of carbon sequestration. We assessed the viability of a diagnostic tool that could be meaningful and reliable. Through in-depth consultations, collaborative work sessions and our internal scientific expertise we produced a detailed technical report that facilitates the platform's long-term development.
