Agri-Food Processors

What is it?

More and more agri-food processors are committing to fight climate change and reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. These commitments benefit the climate while positioning them as leaders on the environmental front.

As a processor, you can reduce your own GHGs. You can also encourage your agricultural partners to do so through good practices. These practices will help reduce their emissions or trap in their soils the carbon from carbon dioxide (CO2), a very common GHG.

Ultimately, you have two options for leveraging the GHG reductions achieved by your agricultural partners. You can:

  • Integrate them into your value chain. In practical terms, this allows you to meet a climate target for your entire value chain
  • Sell them to another company. In practice, you sell GHG reductions (or offsets) to polluting companies so that they offset their own GHG emissions.

 

What’s in it for me?

Climate change is here to stay. By committing now to reducing your GHGs, in collaboration with your agricultural partners, you are getting a head start in learning about this new reality and the business opportunities it presents.

The exact benefits are yet to be determined. But two things are certain: GHG reductions will quickly become a marketable asset, and their value will grow. The earlier you get involved, the more you stand to gain.

Finally, by fighting global warming, you increase the resilience of your value chain. Supporting your agricultural partners in adopting good practices is investing in the future and helping the agri-food sector become stronger and more sustainable.
