Climate Neutral Group
reNature and Climate Neutral Group have partnered to help turn farming and agriculture into a (part of the) solution to the climate crisis. This will make it easier for farmers to get support on regenerative agricultural practices, and at the same time get transparency and financial benefit on the carbon reduction and sequestration. Corporates in the food & beverage sector now can develop programs to make their supply chains more regenerative with certified results.
There’s increasing recognition that nature and agriculture can cooperate instead of compete and can help to solve the climate crisis. Changing from conventional to regenerative agriculture has an important role to play. In the global quest to provide food, many economic and chemical principles have led to enormous deforestation, land exploitation and monocultures in order to maximize revenue per unit of land. At the end, this turns out to be counterproductive: top soil degradation, decreasing harvests, low quality of crops, loss of biodiversity, and an increase in greenhouse gas emissions are only some of the unforeseen effects.
reNature and CNG are going to give the Anauá Model Farm an extra boost by validating and verifying carbon sequestration, making it possible to generate extra income through the generation of carbon credits.
“At Anauá we’re regenerating a degraded pasture land and turning it into a regenerative cocoa agroforestry system that can show the potential of carbon sequestration in transforming landscapes” – Felipe Villela, reNature CCO and Founder
reNature and CNG are not stopping here, and continue to look at developing projects worldwide. Also in The Netherlands, a Model Farm will be piloted. This project will follow the principles of silvopasture in a combination of agroforestry and regenerative grazing.
John Leppers, director of CNG states, ‘It’s exciting to partner with reNature to support our growing customer base who are looking for nature-based solutions to improve their business and tackle climate change.’ The partnership will promote accelerated adoption of regenerative practices by ensuring that the carbon benefits are measured and valued.
