CDFA and CARB launch public-private partnership to advance carbon farming

The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) launched 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.

This collaboration will enable private dollars to support state priorities and practices that the state uses in its climate smart agriculture programs.

This public-private collaboration will bring together food and fiber producers, consumers, and businesses to fund on-farm carbon reductions. CARB and CDFA will convene a working group composed of subject matter experts to design an approach to invest private dollars in climate smart agricultural projects.rev[

In developing this new effort, CARB and CDFA will work with an established California non-profit, the Perennial Farming Initiative and its Zero Foodprint Program to launch Restore California Renewable Restaurants. Through this voluntary initiative, diners can choose zero carbon restaurants that are funding on-farm emissions reductions.
