Reducing agricultural methane emissions is critical to meeting global climate targets. This is especially true for many food and agriculture companies who sell meat and dairy, as over one-third of U.S.
Companies are stepping up to establish science-aligned net zero commitments. Yet it is increasingly clear that to fully meet the moment of the climate crisis, companies must look beyond their ‘four walls’ to ensure that they are maximizing contributions to our ultimate goal: global net zero.
Scope 3 emissions represent the largest and hardest to address segment of most corporate carbon footprints. Complex global value chains, inconsistent measurement, and a lack of transparent disclosure pose immense challenges for companies looking to develop a clear understanding of their full climate impact – a necessity for delivering on science-aligned net zero commitments.
Companies are looking to translate climate commitments and net zero targets into actionable transition plans, but the state of these plans varies widely. Many organizations are lacking critical information while simultaneously navigating a wide range of evolving standards.
