CarbonCrop is a SaaS start-up based in Nelson, New Zealand.
Founded in 2020, we help Kiwi landowners get rewarded for establishing and protecting forests across Aotearoa.
While New Zealand carbon credits have existed since 2008, they can be difficult for landowners to access. That's where we come in. We give landowners all the tools and information they need to assess their eligibility and start earning carbon credits under New Zealand's Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS).
CarbonCrop was born out of the Nelson Artificial Intelligence Institute, an incubator for high-impact sustainability start-ups, and raised $1.5 million in seed funding from WNT Ventures in 2021. Our innovative software uses satellite imagery, machine learning and artificial intelligence to analyse forests and calculate carbon sequestration.
