HabiTerre Hosts Workshop Addressing Gaps in Agricultural Carbon Modeling

HabiTerre, in collaboration with The Donald Danforth Plant and Science Center, with support from the Wells Fargo Innovation Incubator (IN2), hosted an intimate workshop in St. Louis, MO in February. The workshop attracted a wide variety of industry experts who share a common interest in advancing the quantification of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on agricultural lands.

Agriculture contributes nearly 25% of the world’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, making it imperative to focus on reducing emissions from the sector in order to achieve net-zero goals. Insetting and offsetting approaches have developed in efforts to decarbonize agriculture, and environmental markets have emerged and grown rapidly to meet the demand. Accurate measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) of carbon outcomes in agriculture are crucial for the effectiveness of these approaches. However, there are clear gaps between the growing demands of industry needs and the current state of scientific and technological advances in MRV solutions.

The workshop was hosted by The Filament in St. Louis, whose creative approach to meeting facilitation helped to develop collective understanding, uncover insights and unexpected strategies, and streamline the complex process.

Participants engaged in transparent conversation about the gaps in current approaches, identifying essential processes, best practice and areas for cross-industry collaboration in order to establish guidelines for near and long term improvement.

Stay tuned for a white paper identifying the workshop’s key findings.
