Poll: What will get agriculture to net zero fastest?


Put aside for a moment your opinion on the current federal government’s commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

(Though, if you’re curious, you can read about what is proposed, here)

There are two timeframes to think about in regards to carbon emissions — there’s the 2030 line in the sand, by which time certain benchmarks have to be reached, and the larger goal of net zero by 2050.

Perhaps puzzling, the actual numbers expected of agriculture aren’t terribly ambitious . By 2030, Canadian agriculture is expected to have achieved just a one per cent reduction in overall emissions versus the 2005 baseline figure. It seems much of the overall reductions are expected in other industries, instead.

We’re digging in to why that is, and where agriculture’s “good deeds” end up on the emissions ledger, but in the meantime, we want to know HOW you think agriculture can have the biggest impact on carbon reductions by 2050 (so think long term in your answer, please).
