The 2020s herald a pivotal chance to deliver on our great climate, environment and development challenges, and the scale and pace of change will require truly transformative thinking. We will need to move beyond efficiency and doing less harm, and base strategies on new goals that ensure business success also meets the needs of people and the planet. It’s time to step up a gear or three on our journey toward a sustainable future. But what does this mean for how we do business?

El uso de la tierra es ampliamente conocido como un factor importante detrás del cambio climático. Un nuevo documento proporciona una hoja de ruta ambiciosa para los cambios en el manejo forestal, la agricultura y la bioenergía para garantizar que los aumentos de temperatura global se mantengan por debajo del objetivo de calentamiento de 1.5 ° C.
Since the UN climate summit in Paris in 2015 and the resulting plan to improve food security and fight climate change with soil carbon called the ‘4 For 1000 Initiative’, a number of legislative bills have been passed and signed into law around the nation giving momentum to the soil health movement. Hopefully, more states (and eventually Congress) will join this exciting wave of initiatives that encourage soil health – on which all life on earth depends.
A medida que la escasez de agua, las altas temperaturas y el aumento de las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero amenazan la producción de alimentos, los países de todo el mundo buscan nuevas soluciones en el suelo.
We’ve been treating soil like dirt for too long. Dirt needs to be fed in order to produce. Healthy soil contains tens of thousands of microbes pulling carbon out of the atmosphere and turning it into food for themselves and for us. Focusing on common ground over food is a healthy way to start the new year. It’s a place where government is, as is often the case, both the problem and part of the potential solution.
The bottom line is that saving the planet from environmental destruction is not only achievable, but that by focusing on regenerative agriculture and tapping up the central bank for funding, the climate crisis can be addressed without raising taxes and while restoring our collective health.
In the Danube delta, removing dams and bringing back native species have restored ecosystems.
Our chemical and fossil fuel-intensive system of industrial agriculture is belching out 43 to 57 percent of the greenhouse gas pollution that has dangerously destabilized our climate. CAFOs are primary drivers of deteriorating public health as well. Filthy, inhumane, polluting factory farms mass produce approximately 90 to 95 percent of the meat and animal products consumed in America today. To end this degenerate food system, join the growing movement and consumer boycott of all factory-farmed meat, dairy and poultry products, not just at the grocery store, but in restaurants as well — and not just occasionally, but every day.
The Certification— Regenerative Organic (ROC)— will be applied to foods made of organic agricultural ingredients, sourced from farms that embrace pasture-based animal welfare, provide fair labour and economic stability for farmers and communities, and prioritise soil health, biodiversity, land management and carbon sequestration.
Farming is responsible for almost 30% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Agriculture is the root cause of 80% of tropical deforestation. Regenerative agroforestry, an agricultural method that mimics natural ecosystems, could help reverse these trends.
