In the agri-food system, we must consider a variety of options to help meet net-zero emission targets. Agri-businesses have a variety of ways to report sustainability measurements to consumers, shareholders, and trading partners. Some companies are assessing and reporting on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) impacts. Another popular strategy is to develop globally relevant sustainability benchmarks that address transparency concerns about how agri-food is produced and supplied.
On the demand side, Carbon Footprint (CF) labelling is another way to assist consumers in making more sustainable choices and in reducing consumption-based emissions by pushing the demand for sustainability and efficiencies in production and supply chains
In this webinar, we’ll explore sustainability indices, as well as carbon footprint labelling to consider whether these initiatives are helping us to deliver on our climate change commitments.

Reducing methane emissions is seen as the most effective way to meet international climate commitments. Agriculture in Canada accounts for 30% of all methane emissions, with 70% originating from beef production. How is the industry meeting this challenge with innovative ways to reduce methane emissions?
In this webinar, we’ll explore where the beef industry is now and where it’s heading in the near term to meet Canada’s climate goals. What does low emission beef production look like? What will it look like? We’ll explore the role of feed additives in low emission production, and options for both natural and synthetic products. What is being done to develop these products and technologies? What are some of the policy challenges in bringing these options to market?

The Simpson Centre mobilizes research for better policymaking and decision-making to realize a more sustainable agricultural industry. Strengthening the sustainability of agri-food and agribusiness means increasing food production to feed a growing global population, while attending to social and health impacts and the natural environment. We connect researchers, everyday people, industry stakeholders and government actors to scientific issues critical to the future of Canada’s agricultural and food system.
