    Sustainable Ag Featured in Leading Companies’ ESG Reports

    December 21, 2023

    In 2023, agriculture’s role as a climate solution has moved from novel player to the center of the global stage: “Action on food and agriculture has long stood in the shadows of climate negotiations despite accounting for a third of global emissions and being highly vulnerable to climate change,” said Indigo Ag’s Meredith Reisfield, who attended the recent COP28 in Dubai and wrote about it in this blog post. “Global policy commitments and announcements of new funding, initiatives and industry coalitions are elevating the topic to a new level on the global climate stage.”

    Over the past year, Indigo Ag’s work to decarbonize the agricultural value chain was featured in these six industry-leading companies’ ESG reports (see list below). Each of these companies relies on Indigo Ag sustainability solutions—which are powered by rigorous, reliable MRV capabilities and coupled with broad engagement with farmers across the United States—to generate the climate impact and data that is represented in ESG reports. On behalf of the farmers and partners participating in Indigo’s sustainability programs, we are immensely thankful to these companies—and the many other customers of Indigo solutions—for recognizing the role of sustainable agriculture, whether within or beyond their own supply chains, and for elevating it as an important climate solution.

    This agriculture value chain transformation is on a cusp of taking off to the next level of its scale of impact. As more companies reflect on their climate and nature action agenda, I am reminded of the video conversation I recently had with Kendra Pedley, Quantis’s US Food & Beverage Lead, where she said: “Companies are realizing, ‘This is good for business. Really good. This is what we should be focusing on in terms of creating some resilience within our supply chains.’ The year 2020 [at the peak of global pandemic] really shined a light on a lot of the issues that having a vulnerable supply chain can bring to a company and create a lot of chaos. It's also the right thing to do. There's consumer pressure in the public company space. There's a lot of investor pressure, too. So there's a lot of points coming in at a particular company that's causing them to act.”

    We look forward to continuing this work in 2024.
