Climate Mitigation through Regenerative Agriculture
We address food and climate crises with innovative regenerative agriculture that produces food while reducing its carbon footprint.
"1.3B people faced food insecurity in 2022"
"Food systems produce a third of total Green House Gas Emissions"
"Small holder farms use 24% of agricultural land and produce 32% of the world's food"
What is Climate-Smart Agriculture
Climate-smart and regenerative agriculture are set of measures designed to put farmers at the centre, improve crop yield, and improve carbon mitigation all along the agrifood supply chain.
"Amount of CO2 which is in the air used to be in our soils. There are a billion people working in agriculture. If we start paying them to farm with the best agriculture practices, we can put that carbon back to where it belongs."
Sam Kass (Partner, Acre Venture Partners) at WEF Agenda Dialogues Oct 2022
Put simply, the triple win approach aims to turn three existential problems – climate change, biodiversity loss, food insecurity – into solutions that, once scaled, can become part of the green transition and put us back on track to Net-Zero.

Food For Future
Over 1.3 billion people faced food insecurity in 2022, and with a projected world population of 9.8 billion by 2050, over 1.8 billion more people will need access to nutritious and affordable food. To meet this demand, we must produce up to 60% more calories than we did in 2010. However, our current food production methods exacerbate the climate crisis, with 82% of food emissions occurring at the farm stage due to decades of bad agricultural practices. The only way to reverse this trend is to create new systems from the ground up that incentivize the smallholders to care for their land through regenerative practices and bring them into the mainstream of food commerce.
This method brings an innovative approach to generate a best practice in agriculture and create a (new) asset class in climate finance that can tackle food insecurity and climate crisis attracting public and private investments.

Sustainable Development Goals
With 75% of world’s poor being dependent on agriculture, by empowering them with RegenAg best practices and rewarding them with a circular business model, we can realistically achieve the biggest poverty alleviation impact in recorded human history.
Circular Business Model applied to both operations (waste/byproduct management) and finances (profit sharing with smallholders) bringing high quality sustainable food production with reduced time to market.
We can create a world where hunger, food insecurity, and access to safe, healthy, and affordable food are issues of the past.
RegenAg approach leads to higher crop productivity, which in turn brings economic growth to the village ecosystem, as well as environmental benefits such as carbon credits, and social impact.
RegenAg can play a key role in combating climate change by innovating and increasing the amount of CO2 sequestered per acre per year.
To bring true diversification to climate finance by creating a (new) thematic asset class that facilitates financial access to sustainable food production with consistent and sustainable financial and non-financial returns.
Consistent and profitable supply of sustainable food with provenance tracking.

Our Founder's Story
Rushank Bardolia is a social entrepreneur and financial services expert who predicted an impending food crisis back in 2018 when he quit his lucrative banking job and sold his apartment in Luxembourg to inject $50,000 into old agricultural machinery in Ghana. Thus started the humble beginning of
Green Earth Agro (GEA), is a cooperative for sustainable palm oil production that provides employment and microlending services to vulnerable smallholders (+40 people, 65%female). GEA was set up with the aim to show the world that sustainable palm oil is not just a possibility, but a necessity for the livelihood of 5
million farmers the world over. Between then and now, GEA has managed to set up the first-of-its-kind coop-owned health clinic, a logistic service, and a computer center in Ajamaku. With heightened awareness of food insecurity and its intertwined relationship with the climate crisis around the world, Rushank has set his eyes on the World Economic Forum, 2024 where he intends to showcase the MVP on his RegenAg project monitored on Telos blockchain. As an Independent Director on the board of Letzblock, a Luxembourg-based blockchain think tank, Rushank believes agriculture is the greatest ‘Blockchain for good’ use case. With a Bachelor's degree in Engineering and a Master's degree in Economics, Rushank is also a Tedx speaker who shares his insights and experiences in the food industry with a wider audience.
