The challenge of emissions standards & benchmarks in agriculture & nature-based sectors

One of the key challenges in climate mitigation efforts and investments is the lack of standards and benchmarks for measurements and reporting.

While this is much less of a challenge in domains involving industrial emissions – especially energy related CO2 emissions – the challenge is much harder in the context of agricultural and other natural ecosystems emissions.

Directly and indirectly, agriculture (including livestock) could be contributing a very large portion of the total greenhouse gas emissions, and a large portion of the investments into climate change mitigation will be into agriculture – that could be over a trillion $ per year for the next few decades!

What we cannot measure, we cannot control.

A key priority for the top management in industries such as textiles & food that are highly dependent on agriculture is clear: There is a critical need to extend the science based targets philosophy for the agricultural sector so corporates are able to help the agriculture and farming sector in an effective and impactful manner.
