Climate change is real, and human activity is a primary factor.
In fact, today’s food supply chain creates about 13.7 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide per year, which accounts for about a quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions from human activity. Farming is the dominant source, representing 61 percent of food production emissions. But there is hope for change.
Regenerative agricultural methods not only produce less greenhouse emissions, they have the power to sequester carbon and produce a net positive environmental impact, reducing free carbon. The question is, can we turn the ship quickly enough to shift climate warming?
In this webinar we will learn how agricultural carbon sequestration happens, and policy shifts needed to incentivize farmers to adapt and make this a reality. Feeding the future is synonymous with farming for good and changing supply chains.
