Companies on the cutting edge

Sustainability report, climate strategy, taking responsibility, stable supply chains – companies currently have to master many challenges. How do I position myself clearly for more climate protection and sustainability? As a company or with my farm? Should I buy CO2 certificates or not?

Improving soils promotes 14 of 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, internationally and locally on the ground. Together with betterSoil, you're attacking the root of the problem, soils. We dig it. Do you?


Making the supply chain climate-friendly

Do you import food, want to use more natural ingredients in your products, or work directly with farmers? Then healthy soil plays an important role in your supply chain!

Heavy rains, floods, long dry periods and droughts are increasing, disrupting the supply chain and increasing your costs. Our partnership makes your supply chain more resilient. Better soils store CO2, stabilize your supply chain, promote sustainability and are within the meaning of Article 9 of the LkSG. Let's work on it together!

Take responsibility – become a multiplier

Do you want to engage for more climate protection, biodiversity and more sustainability? But your company has no direct connection to the soil?

Get involved with a betterSoil partnership. Position your company clearly for global sustainability and support concrete action.

Securing income – becoming more climate-resilient

Is your soil hard and cracking? Are you having trouble with heat waves, unregular rain and drought? Are your costs increasing with little harvest?

A healthy, humus-rich soil can solve many of the problems. Together we work on a strategy to make your soil and business fit for the next generation. To do this, we use the four betterSoil principles. Contact us.


Fertile soils, species-rich forests and organic buildings are the magic triangle for a better world! Better soils grow better food, sustainably used forests promote biodiversity, and new opportunities for value creation arise for the local population. That is why my initiative Bauhaus der Erde and betterSoil are working together.

We dig it!

In a teaspoon of healthy soil there are more living beings than there are people on Earth. Our approach is holistic. We promote healthy soils and thus 14 of 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (SDGs).

We store CO2 in the soil and promote climate protection and biodiversity. Healthy soil produces healthy food. We are, what we eat.
