The scope for change: How regenerative agriculture can help companies tackle scope 3 emissions and decarbonize the planet - Co-hosted with Danone

More and more companies are taking action to decarbonize, including through commitments validated by the Science-Based Targets initiative.  While measuring and tackling scope 3 emissions can be difficult, they can represent the greatest opportunities for emissions reduction. This is particularly true for food companies, where the bulk of carbon emissions lie in agricultural supply chains. For Danone, for example, agriculture represents 57% of its carbon footprint.

This interactive event will focus on how companies can:

  • Reduce scope 3 emissions linked to agriculture via soil carbon sequestration and regenerative agriculture techniques (Danone to serve as a case study).
  • Claim the maximum emissions benefit from agricultural investments through a new accounting framework co-developed by the Science-Based Targets partners, Gold Standard, Mars, Danone and Livelihoods Fund.
