5 Benefits of Regenerative Agriculture – and 5 Ways to Scale It

In past years, we’ve seen regenerative agriculture move from a being more of an elusive concept to a proven solution, and an answer to the future of farming. Yet despite the clear benefits, it is not scaling fast enough. To us, this is both frustrating and encouraging: frustrating because the solutions are already available; encouraging because we don’t have to reinvent the wheel.

In November, the Sustainable Markets Initiative Agribusiness Task Force launched the report “Scaling regenerative farming: An action plan”. In it, we highlight that

  • Regenerative farming on 40% of the world’s cropland would save around 600 million tons of emissions. This is around 2% of the total, equivalent to the footprint of Germany.
  • But in order to limit climate change to 1.5 degrees, it must be scaled faster.
