Why Regenerative Agriculture?

Driving positive change for a sustainable, thriving and more resilient agriculture sector.

Regenerative agriculture can improve farmer livelihoods, adapt to climate change, enhance resilient eco-systems, and enable companies to achieve environmental, social, and corporate governance goals.

The long-term resilience of agriculture now depends on how quickly we can develop regenerative practices that benefit soil health, biodiversity, water supply, climate resilience and livelihoods.

Why a Regenerative Agriculture Programme?

To meet the urgent need for an industry aligned approach to demonstrate regenerative outcomes on farms.

Starting in 2023, the Regenerative Agriculture Programme will offer flexibility of application to fit the diversity of farms globally, while enabling value chains to communicate and report on regenerative outcomes through existing systems.

What it will enable

A single, trusted and cost-effective way to apply regenerative agriculture principles worldwide, supporting farmers and protecting nature.

“As we develop and define new regenerative agriculture approaches, it is the farmer’s inherent knowledge of the land, its constraints and opportunities, that is critical to ensuring successful social and environmental outcomes based on solid economic foundations.”
