About Soil4Climate

Soil4Climate, a nonprofit organization, advocates for soil restoration as a climate solution. We promote regenerative land management practices to capture atmospheric carbon and encourage collaboration with the larger body of climate activism. Uniting “drawdown” strategies with emissions reduction, divestment from fossil fuels, a price on carbon, and climate justice advocacy, together creates a powerful alliance.

Groups we feel camaraderie with include: The Carbon Underground, Project Drawdown, Regeneration International, Kiss the Ground, Organic Consumers Association, Soil Carbon Coalition, Savory Institute, Rodale Institute, 350.org, Climate Reality Project, Citizens Climate Lobby, Better Future Project, Mothers Out Front, International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM), “4 per 1000” (France’s global soil carbon initiative), and many others.
