Launched at the 2021 event the Environmental Business Expo will focus on environmental land management and the agricultural and rural communities’ contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs).
In 2019 the NFU announced its’ ambition to achieve Net Zero for agriculture by 2040, to aid with government’s commitment to achieving the same by 2050, pointing to agriculture as both an emissions source and a sink.
In addition, the UK’s new Agriculture Bill will see farmers move away from the CAP regulations to a new system of environmental land management contracts, detailing the terms and conditions under which farmers and land managers will receive funding.
The Environmental Business Expo will examine the steps needed to achieve Net Zero, provide advice on the ways to comply with policy, guidance on effective carbon & environmental land management, plus outline the benefits and examine the challenges facing agricultural and rural businesses.
Topics to be covered include:
- Achieving Net Zero
- Carbon sequestration
- Natural Capital
- Policy compliance
- Reducing GHGs through improved productivity
- Soil Health
- Waste management
