Business around the world need to join the race to Net Zero – but how can they do it?

The first, and arguably most important, goal of the COP26 United Nations climate change conference focuses on securing global Net Zero in order to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees. For companies directly engaging in the production or use of coal and other fossil fuels, carrying out deforestation, or financing those who do, this goal serves as a clear cease and desist order. But for those working in other areas - be it retail, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, technology, or the myriad other industries which are not directly related to these harmful activities, the route to Net Zero is more ambiguous.

Robustness and accuracy at scale – the certification process for large agribusinesses

In the GROUND burger kit case study from Neil Harleys farm, we saw how the certification process works for a single herd of livestock. Neil uses mob grazing on diverse pastures across an area of land that was being taken out of intensive crop cultivation, regenerating the land the biodiversity around it. Our audit covered the entire farm area and looked at management plans, soil sampling data and in field indicators. We used the information gathered to score Neil’s farm against the regenagri standard criteria, accessible through the Digital Hub. This area of Neil’s operation covered 87.5 hectares, and some larger agribusiness might be wondering how regenagri can be used to scale across a larger business, potentially in a different climate to Neil’s farm.
