CLIMATE - SOIL - BALTIC SEA - BIODIVERSITY
Corporate participation is needed to scale carbon sequestration in farmland and for achieving Carbon Action’s ambitious goals. Business is needed to implement the change in the food supply chain and communicate to consumers. Thereby we can promote more sustainable food production through cooperation.
A key principle in Carbon Action is cooperation that benefits all parties and encourages learning from one another. On one hand, the Carbon Action research needs the help and broad experience of farmers and businesses to be able to produce science that is implementable in practice. On the other hand, farmers and businesses are interested in the results produced by the Carbon Action scientists.
By joining the Carbon Action company platform companies gain unique access to the most recent scientific knowledge. We share information about the development of carbon sequestration and other benefits of healthy soils such as decreased eutrophication and strengthened biodiversity. The project also develops models for carbon trading.
Companies can, in cooperation with BSAG and researchers, develop their purchase criteria, improve sustainability communications, train farmers and staff, and explore different ways of utilizing the practices developed by Carbon Action on the path towards developing a more sustainable business. This way, the business can implement its sustainability strategy by decreasing its emissions, introduce more sustainable products to the market, and influence consumers’ attitudes and consumption behaviour.
The members of the Carbon Action company platform regularly meet. Also, the researchers and other experts take part in the cooperation. The goal is to exchange knowledge and skills, and advance innovation and create space for new ideas to increase the impact of Carbon Action.
Biocode Oy develops its online carbon footprint calculator for food products to recognise effects of regenerative farming on soil carbon sequestration. The calculator is a practical addition to the soil carbon verifying system developed by Finnish Meteorological Institute on Carbon Action platform. Furthermore, Biocode includes information about regenerative farming in its online tool and guides tool users to the e-college “Uudistavan viljelyn e-opisto”. Read more.
