Our food systems

The current system of food production and consumption is one of the main causes of emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

The impact is not limited to the climate crisis , but is strongly linked to the degradation of agricultural land, water pollution, overexploitation of animals and the mass extinction of species.

The necessary decarbonization of our society is pending a fundamental axis of work in our food system.

Reduce excess atmospheric carbon

The food sector, although a net generator of GHG emissions, has the potential to reverse its current position towards a decisive role for carbon storage .

Agricultural soils can fix carbon and reduce the excess atmospheric carbon that causes global warming , while increasing soil fertility, water availability, reducing input exports, and improving the viability of farms.
