Climate Spotlight: Agriculture!

Did you know that agriculture is responsible for 19% of global emissions?

Agricultural emissions come from methane (CH4) which is produced by the cattle we raise for meat and dairy consumption, and nitrous oxide (N2O) which is found in the soil itself.

By 2050, the global population is expected to reach 10 billion, compared to 8 billion today. Our growing population will require over 50% more calories, resulting in a growing demand for meat and dairy products. Finding the correct balance between the growing demand for food and the environmental impact will require significant changes and further innovation.

This means:

  • Reducing the use of synthetic fertilizers and shifting towards precision fertilization.
  • Improving methods of land and soil management by way of regenerative agriculture.
  • Investing and scaling alternative protein sources such as plant-based meat and dairy.
  • Reducing global food waste.

To reach emissions reduction targets, modern farming needs to be more sustainable, resilient, and productive.
