Rewarding Farmers for Regenerative Agriculture Is ‘Critical for Decarbonising the Food Sector’

The food sector is one of the biggest contributors to the climate and nature crises. The way we grow, distribute, consume and dispose of food is responsible for one third of total greenhouse gas emissions annually. Food systems are the biggest contributor to galloping biodiversity loss, and account for 70% of freshwater withdrawals.
With half of food system emissions down to agricultural production and land-use change in corporate value chains, food brands have an outsized role in food system transformation.
