Agriculture accounts for more than 15 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions and is one of the sectors that will be most profoundly altered by climate change. While companies have developed programs to mitigate emissions from their agriculture supply chains, corporate leaders are looking beyond mitigation and toward resilience. From supporting climate-smart agriculture practices at the farm level to engaging consumers to reduce food waste, there’s a wave of innovative and game-changing opportunities that not only minimize the impact of food production but turn agriculture into a climate solution. The session will explore three increasingly prominent opportunities: mitigating the climate impacts of a protein-rich diet, adopting climate-smart agriculture practices, and addressing food waste reductions. Learn how companies can borrow from these approaches to create a holistic approach towards a carbon positive food system.
