White Paper: Carbon Farming
A growing global population has increased food demand, resulting in a carbon footprint from agricultural activities that continues to impact the environment negatively. While agriculture is part of the problem, it can also become a part of the solution.
By some measures, CO₂ emissions from agricultural production account for 11% of global greenhouse gas emissions (GHE), driven in particular by the livestock sector. In response, new carbon markets tailored to farming and agricultural activities have emerged with increasing interest from farmers, private corporations and governments. While farmers and ranchers are already sequestering carbon through sustainable soil, crops, livestock and groforestry management practices, investments in carbon markets by the private sector are gaining share.
