Achieving the Paris Agreement targets requires a radical transformation of the world’s food and land use systems. The land sector alone can deliver at least 30% of the mitigation required to reach net-zero.
In this context, companies with a land-use footprint must embrace interventions to conserve and restore forests and other natural ecosystems in the landscapes they source from as part of their climate strategies. To help scale up these investments, carbon accounting frameworks that provide the right incentives are key.
This hour-long webinar will assess what’s required to drive urgency and transformation in the food and land use system. We’ll discuss:
• What is the role of carbon accounting rules to incentivize the right actions for transformation ?
• The challenges that need to be addressed to make these incentives work in practice
• The challenges and opportunities for companies with a land-use footprint to invest and scale up natural climate solutions at a landscape level
Our panel will include:
• Michele Zollinger, global sustainable sourcing for pulp and paper & climate lead, Nestlé
• Scarlett Benson, co-director of knowledge generation for the food and land use coalition (FOLU), SYSTEMIQ
• Sandra Genee, head of value change initiative, SustainCERT
• Tilmann Silber, strategy lead climate & nature, Barry Callebaut
