Manage Key Issues: Agriculture
Agricultural companies have complex value chains that are vulnerable to climate change and the economic risks related to the net zero transition. Working with suppliers and end-users to reduce powerful pollutants like methane helps companies manage transition risks, gain a competitive advantage, and secure food production for future generations.
Decarbonizing agricultural value chains is core to addressing climate change and will require collaboration between all stakeholders in the sector. Your company can drive more resilient and climate-smart agriculture by working with farmers on solutions like improving soil health and mitigating methane from dairy and livestock. Along with farming practices, other sources of value chain emissions for your company may include the transport and distributions of your products and the manufacturing of goods purchased by your company.
Targeting emissions reductions in your value chain will create opportunities for innovation, improve efficiency, reduce costs, and achieve other important sustainability goals like regenerating ecosystems and preserving air and water quality in our communities.
The following action steps provide more insight on managing the key issues for food and agriculture companies related to emissions in your value chain.
