Carbon Cycle Institute

Our mission is to stop and reverse global warming by advancing natural,
science-based solutions that remove atmospheric carbon while promoting
environmental stewardship, social equity and economic sustainability.


Our programs include Agricultural Carbon and Carbon Cycle Literacy.

Agricultural Carbon

Seeking to reverse global warming by advancing the adoption of agricultural practices proven to sequester soil carbon and permanently remove atmospheric CO2

Carbon Cycle Literacy

Implementing a “Carbon Cycle 1.0” education and outreach strategy to promote carbon cycle literacy—targeting key constituencies, decision-makers, and thought leaders in the fields of climate change and sustainable agriculture

Strategic Partners

Our strategic partners include the Marin Carbon Project and Fibershed.

Marin Carbon Project

Achieving carbon sequestration in rangeland
and agricultural soils through research
and development of scalable, repeatable
“carbon farming” techniques


Engaging with small to mid-scale fiber producers and designers to support carbon cycle literacy and build a regenerative textile economy
