The Carbon Underground was created in 2013 with two core goals—coalesce the emerging science on soil’s relationship to climate change and tell the world about a possibility to not simply slow down this threat, but reverse it.
Since that time we have grown into an international outcomes-based organization focusing on creating the tools, alliances, and opportunities to achieve scale at efforts proven to draw down carbon and mitigate the climate crisis.
Our Theory of Change is based on the following core beliefs:
- There is no solution to climate change that does not include drawing down legacy carbon from the atmosphere.
- There is no mechanism with the scale, ability, and immediacy to draw adequate amounts of carbon back down to mitigate climate change other than the restoration of soil and shift to regenerative agriculture.
