Carbon Opportunity Cost September 24, 2020 by Leah Wolfe

A few themes we explore in this session:

  • How can we measure the impact of land being used for agriculture rather than remaining natural habitat?
  • What are some of the gaps in Life Cycle Assessments and how can they be improved?
  • Why is it important to shift mindsets from net-zero to a spectrum beyond sustainable to regenerative and net-positive?

If at some point you recognize, all of these crops have similar tillage practices and carbon sequestration may or may not be happening. We don’t know exactly how good it is. You might just assume it’s flat, or at least it’s equal and it won’t make a difference to our measurement. That turns out to be a massive hole, and that’s the hole that led us down this carbon opportunity cost exploration.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions​

Brands are facing mounting pressure to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and resulting carbon footprints. Agricultural and food production is responsible for more than a third of global emissions, so choosing better ingredients is critical for meeting ESG commitments and slowing climate change - but how can companies get started?
