Climate Positive Commitment

What is Climate Positive?

Climate positive is transforming the agriculture system to be more resilient, to effectively produce plentiful healthy, nutritious food for the growing population while benefiting our planet, farmers and ranchers, and the global food system. Includes removing greenhouse gas emissions from the air to help ensure a resilient farming ecosystem for generations to come.

 

“The impacts of climate change affect us all, and the way forward will take a collective effort. Agriculture is a fundamental part of the solution, and we know we can achieve climate positive agriculture today — for our farmers whose land is their livelihood; for our industry that strives to build the best solutions today for the problems of tomorrow; and for every human on this planet, because we all deserve a resilient, reliable and accessible food system that produces healthy nutritious food.”

— Jim Collins, CEO of Corteva Agriscience

 

Advancing Climate Positive Agriculture

Every day, farmers and the entire agriculture industry face the impacts of climate change. From extreme weather events and wildfires to plant and animal habitats, the effects are clearly present. But we know there is a way forward – with climate positive agriculture. We can achieve sustainable climate action today, reducing greenhouse gases while nourishing the soil and protecting the water, and without sacrificing on-farm productivity or profitability. Farmers and ranchers can remove carbon from the air while securing the economic future for the vast majority of the world’s population. Farmers like you are the ones making this happen.

Putting Farmers First

Farmers are Leading the Way

Farmers are leading the way, implementing climate positive agriculture practices. You are the original stewards of the land and you are on the front line of climate change impacts. You’ve been making a tremendous difference at an individual scale. Now we want to help you make a difference globally. Together, we’re helping plant the seeds for a sustainable future.

Rewarding Innovation

The agriculture industry can be stronger if given the flexibility and incentives to adopt agronomic practices that can help us get to climate positive. By simplifying the path to profitability, we are supporting farmers and ranchers who implement new climate positive or regenerative practices, inspiring others to broadly adopt climate positive agriculture.

We’re Going All In
