Farming and ranching practices such as cover cropping, rotational grazing and minimizing tillage can help replenish the land and boost the ability of farms and communities to weather the unpredictable effects of climate change. Regenerative agriculture not only improves soil health but also provides sequesters carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Increasingly, consumers are demanding traceable, ethical products and greater responsibility and transparency from the companies that make them. Regenerative agriculture provides an opportunity for companies to transform their products and supply chains from being pollution-emitters to being part of a solution that fights climate change while supporting farmers and building a more resilient food system.
Companies and brands can use regenerative sourcing to meet their climate targets and other corporate responsibility goals. Through encouraging or incentivizing suppliers to implement regenerative practices, brands can drive change throughout their supply networks and accelerate their sustainability strategy.
