Description

Soil health is a pressing global issue. There is an urgent need to mobilize nature-based solutions to address the challenges of climate change. Global soils contain two to three times more carbon than the atmosphere – however, by working with nature and improving soil health, increased carbon sequestration can help to reduce emissions and withstand some of the unavoidable effects of climate change.

This report includes case studies from 10 companies across the agricultural value chain on five continents that demonstrate a compelling business case for investing in soil health. It conveys the ambition to secure broad engagement of the global business community to take action on this issue at scale.

Most importantly, companies are encouraged to take action immediately. Science-based solutions that integrate the issue of soils into reporting, accounting and supply chain assurance can already be piloted and implemented.
