Sustainable Agriculture

We recognise that climate change is one of the most significant challenges facing the UK today, and that the Agriculture sector has a significant role to play in the fight against climate change. That is why we are committed to supporting Britain’s farmers to transition to sustainable business models and operations, and to pursue new clean growth opportunities.

The UK Government has set an ambition to be net zero by 2050, with the National Farmers Union (NFU) setting the agriculture sector an even more ambitious goal of transitioning to net zero by 2040. This means achieving an overall balance between reducing greenhouse gas emissions produced and increasing carbon dioxide removed from the atmosphere through sequestration.

We have produced a report outlining the critical recommendations to the agriculture sector as part of their transition to a net zero future, which are supported by a range of bodies such as the Committee on Climate Change and the NFU. The report covers:

  • What climate change is and why it matters;
  • Practical recommendations as to how you can transition to net zero;
  • How we can help.
