Sustainable Agriculture

We are supporting European farmers in meeting sustainability requirements by co-creating climate-neutral, fair, resilient and economically viable agricultural practices.

Accelerating the transition to sustainable farming

Agriculture is at the heart of our food system; as our population grows, so too does our dependence on it to feed and nourish us. However, agriculture, forestry and other types of land use are currently responsible for almost a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions. This is primarily from deforestation and emissions from livestock, soil and nutrient management and, therefore, the transition to sustainable agriculture is crucial. To achieve this, EIT Food works with startups and partners working to make farming more sustainable and equitable.
