Achieving a sustainable future

Governments and industries across the globe are committed to reducing emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) through a variety of targets and frameworks.

The supply chain for agriculture is a significant contributor to GHGs, representing approximately 8-11% of human-induced emissions.

With approximately 80% of the carbon from a litre of milk coming before the farm gate, agriculture has a growing responsibility towards a sustainable future.

To work towards truly sustainable agriculture, Alltech E-CO2 focuses on three key pillars – environmental, economic and social sustainability.

To achieve a fully sustainable agricultural practice, all aspects must be incorporated into a practical and achievable programme. To that end, attaining sustainable agriculture is about helping farmers to develop plans that combine long-term profitability with maximum social responsibility and environmental care.
