Latest from The Climate Collaborative
As we kick off a new and hopefully less tumultuous year, I wanted to share some GOOD climate news we already have coming down the pike in 2021. Hundreds of Climate Collaborative companies stepped up and engaged in policy advocacy last year—many for the first time—through LEAD on Climate, America is All in, and dozens of state-based efforts. Today I can tell you, your efforts are making a difference.
Today, ahead of Saturday's five year anniversary of the Paris Climate Agreement, more than 1,400+ businesses, cities, states, investors, and other U.S. institutions stood together and called for an ambitious and equitable national climate response. Over 200 CC committed companies joined a diverse set of businesses and institutions representing nearly every corner of the American economy and society. Broad-based collective calls like this matter—they send a message that it’s not just the progressive left that demands climate action, but a far-reaching bipartisan group of actors from every walk of life in America.
In 2018, we shared details on Happy Family Organics’ regenerative agriculture farmer training pilot. The program set out to provide free technical support and guidance to farmers in Happy Family Organics’ supply chain on how they could shift to practices that can help store more carbon in the soil, improve watershed health, support biodiversity while also improving overall soil health and land productivity. Two years later, they've completed a second pilot and have now launched a Regenerative Farmer Fund to provide ongoing support to farmers in their supply chain. We sat down with their Sustainability Director, Katie Clark, to learn more.
