Part 1: Carbon Farming Strategies for Mission-Driven Companies: Tuesday, April 12th 12pm-1:30pm (online)
Learn why carbon farming is relevant to your business. You'll learn the carbon cycle, the various kinds of carbon farming & what yields or products can come from carbon farming practices. We'll discuss the potential role for business & enterprise & perhaps most importantly, what is actually happening on the ground today.
With that understanding, you can begin to envision what role your company might play, be it offsetting your emissions by investing in bio-sequestration projects, or re-examining your supply chain and ways you can purchase from climate-friendly producers.
The first 90-minute webinar will feature the following leaders & projects:
John Roulac, CEO, Nutiva - Nutiva's Role to Play in The Carbon Farming Solution.
Rebecca Burgess, Founder, Fibershed - Inspiring the largest textile company in the world to invest in Carbon Farming practices for Climate-Beneficial goods

Next, you'll activate your intentions to become more Climate-Beneficial. Learn the difference between a Climate Neutral Certified and Climate-Beneficial Company. Understand the importance of metrics and tracking. Create a plan identifying next steps for your business & carbon farming. Next steps could include partnering with other companies to explore supply chain investments or measuring your baseline emissions. Whatever it may be, you'll walk away with clear next actions towards your contribution to a healthier climate.
