Organizations across the agriculture value chain are focusing greater attention on the climate crisis, according to the latest Climate Compendium from Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture™. The report found that almost three quarters of Field to Market members (73%) have established public commitments on climate change, growing from 68% in 2021. These include The American Peanut Council, the U.S. Soybean Export Council, The National Cotton Council of America, The Intertribal Agriculture Council, The U.S. Grains Council, and the U.S. Rice Federation who are part of the U.S. Sustainability Alliance.
However, despite the advances made, Field to Market President Scott Herndon says there is more work to be done.
“We are proud to see a continuous growth in the number of public climate goals and commitments set by our members, as well as progress made toward achieving those goals,” Herndon said. “However, we must all continue to push ourselves, and each other, to deliver on these goals. No organization can solve this challenge alone – we all must work together to accelerate climate action across all sectors of the value chain.”
