As the climate policy debate ramps up in Congress and the incoming Biden administration, there are a variety of ideas about how to measure, incentivize and regulate more sustainable practices. The 2021 Agri-Pulse Ag & Food Policy Summit will offer a chance to engage with a wide variety of policy makers and industry experts about what changes may be on the horizon. This year's virtual summit will feature three half-day sessions.
“President-elect Joe Biden made action on climate change a key part of his campaign platform and has pledged to focus on climate in every federal agency. He’s not alone,” says Agri-Pulse Editor and Founder Sara Wyant. “Major food companies are already making carbon commitments and expecting farmers and supply chains to comply with a focus on sustainable and regenerative practices. Yet, there are a lot of different factors involved with getting the science, the economics and the cultural factors to align in a way that produces measurable and valuable outcomes.”
“This is a terrific opportunity to discuss various policy options and to share ideas for how agriculture and the food industry can have seats at the climate solutions table,” adds Wyant.
