CarbonCrop was founded in 2020 with the goal of using Artificial Intelligence to help landholders pull a billion tonnes of CO2 out of the atmosphere and lock it up into trees.
Ultimately, we want the same things as most people: a rich, productive, resilient, and biodiverse ecosystem that strikes the right balance between forest restoration and agriculture, and effectively reduces climate change. These aren’t new ideas, we’re just trying to make it easier to get it done.

Carbon Claimed in 2023
We're particularly focused on encouraging New Zealand native reforestation, which benefits wildlife and biodiversity.
Not only do we want to remove carbon from the atmosphere, but in the process we want to improve agricultural resilience, restore degraded landscapes and boost farm profitability.
Our ultimate goal is to play our part in addressing the challenges of climate change and helping to create a future we can all be proud of, achieved through better offsets and better forests.
A spin-off from the Nelson Artificial Intelligence Institute, where the core of our original solution was conceived, we are a technology company at heart.
At CarbonCrop, we’ve created technology that enables scalable monitoring and verification of carbon removals over vast areas of mixed species biodiverse forest, with high precision. The use of AI technology to assess forests, calculate carbon sequestration, monitor for reversals, and speed up the process of issuing carbon offsets at scale.
We’re focused on sustained improvement in everything we do, including with our technology, so we can continue to put the power into the hands of the customers and move towards achieving better offsets and better forests.
