How ADAS can support the drive towards Net Zero
ADAS experts were part of a team (with Vivid Economics) that produced some of the supporting research for the CCC report. ADAS is familiar with the need to ensure that food security is maintained having been founded to support the drive to feed the UK back in the 1940’s – and an issue still key to the support that ADAS brings to agriculture and food production.
ADAS have a keen interest in supporting the transition to Net Zero and are working with the farming sector to help transition agriculture to meet Net Zero goals. This includes working with policymakers, the food industry and farmers, to understand farmers’ concerns about the impact of withdrawal from the CAP, and the introduction of a new agricultural policy that rewards the provision of public goods, including land-use change.
The land in the UK and those who care for it and farm it, can play a dramatic role in supporting carbon reductions by thinking about and acting on land use, and consumers have a role to play. There is a clear call to arms here to change what we do to improve how we eat, how we protect the climate and those qualities that make the UK countryside unique. Let ADAS help you on the journey ahead.
