We invite you to gain and share insights on an upcoming decarbonisation methodology for the agricultural and forestry sectors in line with climate science.
On 25 September 2015, you can join our online stakeholder workshop that brings together companies, NGOs, and sector experts ranging from farmers to retail. Learn more about science-based emission reduction in agriculture and forestry, and provide your input to the decarbonisation methodology which will be developed over the next 8 months.
Who are we? A Dutch-British consortium: The University of Aberdeen, PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency and Ecofys. Funded by the KR Foundation, we are developing the methodology together with experts in the field of AFOLU emissions. The approach is based on our work for the Science Based Targets initiative of CDP, UN Global Compact, WRI and WWF.
Why is the methodology being developed? With this methodology, companies can determine a fair share of emission reductions and make their own operations and supply chain 2°C compatible. The methodology will also allow NGOs and policy makers to benchmark the targets and actions for the agriculture and forestry sector. To create emissions intensity pathways towards the year 2050, we assess the current emissions, abatement potentials and costs of climate smart agricultural solutions for 10 major commodities (i.e. meat, dairy, poultry, pig, rice, wheat, maize, soy, palm oil, round wood) and model this in an integrated scenario to stay below 2°C at the lowest cost.
Interested? To hear more about this approach, proposed methodology and share your valuable insights and thoughts with us please contact Giel Linthrost
