PepsiCo, ADM collaborate to support regenerative agriculture
ADM and PepsiCo have agreed to collaborate on regenerative agriculture across their shared North American supply chains to eliminate around 1.4 million metric tons of greenhouse gasses.
The seven-and-a-half-year commercial partnership plans to reach up to 2 million acres by 2030.
The two businesses want to help farmers migrate to regenerative agriculture and increase their climate change resistance.
To boost awareness throughout the value chain, the agreement will first employ corn, soy, and wheat farmers in Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and Nebraska, with the possibility of future expansion.
Additionally, a variety of farmer-first regenerative agriculture efforts, such as nutrient management, various rotations, and appropriate pesticide use, would be incorporated
The companies plan to offer access to peer regenerative farming networks, host educational field days, and track results using third-party measurement systems.
Jim Andrew, chief sustainability officer at PepsiCo, said they are working to spread regenerative agriculture practices that reduce carbon emissions to 7 million acres by 2030.
Meanwhile, ADM’s chief sustainability officer, Alison Taylor, said they are committed to reducing their Scope 3 emissions by 25 percent by 2035.
