Building More Sustainable Agricultural Supply Chains, Today and Into the Future

More and more companies are looking to measure and mitigate the full scope of their greenhouse gas emissions in alignment with changing regulations and new standards. Agricultural supply chains are a key piece of the puzzle. As companies look to assess the impact of the raw materials they source, they’re challenged to gather data from the farmers and producers in their supply chains — and to work proactively with those suppliers to implement more sustainable practices that avoid or reduce emissions.

In this series sponsored by Indigo Ag, we’ll explore innovative ways that science and technology can increase visibility into agricultural supply chains and help suppliers and companies change their practices for the better. With the right tools in hand, companies have the opportunity to leverage their supply chains to not only meet their reporting needs, but also catalyze measurable emissions reductions on fields and farms worldwide.
