SustainCERT and Regrow Ag Transform Emissions Management

In a collaboration that promises to reshape the landscape of agricultural sustainability, SustainCERT SA and Regrow Ag have joined forces to offer a groundbreaking end-to-end solution for measuring, reporting, and verifying Scope 3 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in agricultural supply chains. This partnership comes at a critical juncture when the world is grappling with the urgent need to reduce emissions and mitigate the impacts of climate change.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (UN FAO) has highlighted the alarming reality that the food and agriculture value chain is responsible for a staggering 31 percent of global GHG emissions. However, an equally promising narrative emerges from studies indicating that the adoption of natural climate solutions, particularly regenerative agriculture, holds the potential to contribute up to 37 percent of the climate mitigation required to achieve the world’s 2030 climate goals. This partnership between Regrow and SustainCERT is poised to unlock these promising prospects and drive tangible progress toward emission reduction.

SustainCERT’s pioneering value chain decarbonization solution, which combines climate accounting expertise with cutting-edge technology, presents a pivotal advancement in the field of emissions reduction. This platform equips companies with the means to verify and assert GHG impacts from interventions while enabling the transfer of verified GHG impacts between supply chain partners and other eligible entities. This groundbreaking concept of “co-claiming” and co-investing in GHG reductions and removals has the potential to accelerate the pace of decarbonization and facilitate collective action.

Regrow harnesses the power of satellite data, machine learning, and sophisticated soil modeling to quantify GHG emissions at the field level. By monitoring vast agricultural expanses and empowering farmers with actionable insights, Regrow’s Agriculture Resilience Platform not only promotes sustainable practices but also creates financial incentives for farmers to embrace change. This approach addresses the pivotal role that farmers play in the sustainability equation and aligns with the overarching mission to foster resilience in agriculture on a global scale.

The partnership between SustainCERT and Regrow brings an innovative solution to a long-standing challenge—the seamless integration of measurement and reporting data with the verification process. Historically, this process has been manual and labor-intensive, hampering the efficiency and accuracy of emissions reduction efforts. By bridging the gap between measurement and verification, this collaboration introduces an industry-first end-to-end solution that streamlines the process and enhances credibility.

Marion Verles, CEO of SustainCERT, praised the partnership’s potential to facilitate credible Scope 3 action. She emphasizes that the collaboration will leverage the strengths of both platforms to measure, report, and verify agricultural Scope 3 climate impact projects. This alignment between measurement and verification empowers Regrow’s customers with a more seamless and accurate verification process, accelerating the realization of impactful emission reduction outcomes.

SustainCERT, with its climate impact verification expertise, offers an authoritative voice in the realm of sustainability. The organization’s alignment with international sustainability frameworks and its role as a co-founder of the Value Change Initiative underscores its commitment to advancing emission reduction efforts. Through its digital verification and management platform, SustainCERT contributes to the acceleration of accurate data measurement for carbon credits and GHG impacts, thereby accelerating progress toward sustainable practices.

By combining their strengths, these two trailblazing entities are ready to drive real and measurable change in agricultural supply chains. With a focus on sustainability, accuracy, and scalability, this collaboration charts a path toward a more resilient, emission-reduced, and sustainable future for agriculture and the planet.

  • […] This discovery is monumental considering the surge of N2O emissions by 30% in the last 40 years, primarily attributed to human activities. Approximately 73% of manufactured N2O emissions are due to agricultural soil management. Given the vast scale of global wheat cultivation, these findings present a promising solution to curb N2O emissions significantly. […]
