9:05-10:15 a.m.: From the Ground Up: Building Resilient Agriculture Supply Chains
Carbon farming and regenerative agricultural practices represent a huge opportunity for companies to work with their supply chains to reverse food sector emissions through carbon soil sequestration. In this session, we’ll look at how three companies are working to strengthen supplier relationships to reduce their environmental impact and to improve the lives and livelihoods of the people and communities in their value chain.
We’ll hear specific practices they are employing—from agroforestry supply chain practices with Dr. Bronner’s to Lotus Food’s work to reduce methane emissions and improve the lives of women farmers. General Mills Natural and Organic division will share details about their outcomes-based approach that highlights regenerative practices from supply chain producers and how this comes to life through some of their brands.
