About the Unit

As part of the global transformation of food production towards more transparency and sustainability, Yara has set carbon optimization and climate action as key strategic priorities. Optimizing how cropland is managed will make a substantial contribution to lowering global agricultural greenhouse gas emissions. From carbon sequestration to avoidance or reduction in farm-level emissions, Yara is launching a new business venture centered around decarbonization of the food chain.

The launch of Yara’s Agoro Carbon Alliance will address agriculture’s global greenhouse gas emissions and will turn the carbon capturing potential at farm level into a sustainable growth business while providing a new income stream to farmers worldwide. Our passion lies in developing a global carbon alliance built around a portfolio of carbon smart farming practices that help farmers reduce their environmental footprint. As one of the early movers in this market, we are using our knowledge on carbon practices, our global presence, our digital and data capabilities, and our strong relationships with the food value chain to pioneer an industry-shaping business.
