CDFA and Air Resources Board launch public-private partnership to advance carbon farming

229

SACRAMENTO – The California Department of Food and Agriculture and the California Air Resources Board are announcing the launch of a public-private initiative to advance climate smart agriculture and reduce greenhouse gas emissions on agricultural lands.

This partnership will create a mechanism for leading businesses in the food and fiber supply chain to directly fund climate projects on California farms and ranches.

Agricultural lands play a pivotal role in fighting climate change. This collaboration will enable private dollars to support state priorities and practices that the state uses in its climate smart agriculture programs.

By 2030, Restore California restaurants can deliver millions of tons of carbon reductions on California farms and ranches. More information on Restore California Renewable Restaurants is available at https://www.perennialfarming.org/restoreca ….
