Harnessing regenerative agriculture for sustainable business success

The green revolution in business

In the face of growing environmental challenges, the global business community is actively seeking viable, scalable solutions to offset their climate impact and support the sustainability transformation. A solution that is growing in effectiveness and popularity is Regenerative Agriculture, with its numerous co-benefits. This approach transcends traditional farming, offering a path to restoring our soils, protecting biodiversity and combating the climate crisis. For forward-thinking companies, Regenerative Agriculture is not just a method to combat climate change, but it represents a holistic approach to achieving long-term sustainability goals.   

Regenerative agriculture & carbon sequestration: a cornerstone for your climate strategy 

Regenerative agriculture aims to sustainably transform our interaction with the land, and is not just another trend following organic, nor is it narrowly focused on carbon farming. 

The essence of regenerative agriculture lies in the soil. Our soils, rich in carbon — with the topsoil alone containing more carbon than the atmosphere and all the world's plants combined — hold immense potential.  By adopting practices that contribute to humus enrichment, regenerative agriculture stores carbon. The

WEF suggests

, if 40% of the world’s cropland used Regenerative Agriculture, it could offset about 600 Million tons of emissions annually, roughly equating to the total carbon footprint of Germany. If applied globally,

estimates that it has the potential to keep global warming within the 1.5-degrees Celsius target, when combined with other transformative measures. An added crucial benefit is that it also revitalises soil structure and boosts field biodiversity, leading to regenerated, fertile, and climate-resilient soil.

How you can help overcome the barriers of regenerative agriculture 

The question arises, if Regenerative Agriculture is so great and has so many benefits, why is it not more wide-spread? Such a transformation of complicated and entrenched systems like agriculture move slowly, and the transition faces challenges in wider adoption, such as financial risks to farmers, initial yield dips and knowledge gaps. However, companies can help overcome these challenges, by taking a farmer-focused approach and providing them with critical support.
