Fazer supports regenerative carbon farming
What does this mean?
To meet our ambitious emission reduction targets, our aim is to make farming more sustainable by promoting the transformation of Finnish farmland from carbon sources to carbon sinks. What does this mean, exactly? Well, a carbon source produces carbon, while a carbon sink takes more carbon out of the atmosphere than it creates. And stores that to the soil.
How will we do this?
To achieve this goal, we contributed to a free 60-hour online course that was developed in cooperation with the Baltic Sea Action Group (BSAG) and its stakeholder network, as well as software company Reaktor.
What will this achieve?
The implementation of regenerative carbon farming is a concrete action that has proved effective in decreasing carbon dioxide emissions. It can be used to mitigate climate change and safeguard the preservation of biodiversity.
Carbon farming improves the quality of the soil and our crops, as well as decreasing the need for industrial fertilisers and pesticides. Not only are the crops healthier for our end consumers, but they’re more profitable as well.
