Scope 3 action agenda for the agrifood sector

Tackling land-based emissions and removals

Discover the critical path to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions within the agrifood sector in a publication developed by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) with support from Quantis.

This essential guide underscores the importance of addressing on-farm activities and land-use changes, which constitute the majority of the sector’s emissions. Highlighting the role of in-value-chain interventions as a pivotal strategy for agrifood companies, the publication showcases how these initiatives can significantly contribute to achieving climate goals through GHG reduction or removal within company value chains.

Collaboratively, the WBCSD is steering efforts with members and partners to overcome challenges associated with scope 3 emissions related to land use. This publication paves the way for aligning corporate performance with financial market incentives, fostering innovation, and meeting the urgent demand for corporate accountability. It maps out a comprehensive framework for transforming the agrifood system from a net emitter to a net sink of GHG emissions, which is vital for adhering to the 1.5°C pathway set by the Paris Agreement.
