Agriculture, forestry and other land uses represent 24 per cent of global greenhouse gases emissions, second only to the global energy sector.

We work to advance sustainable, resource-efficient, low-carbon agriculture, stimulate a bio-materials market, and strengthen the carbon sequestration capacity of forests.
