Healthy soil is critical in mitigating climate change. Yet, our soil is not healthy. Every year, the United States is losing 10 billion tons of fertile soil, which is far faster than nature can replenish it. When you consider 95% of the food we eat is grown in soil, this fact is alarming.

“Agriculture is often fingered as a major culprit in climate change,” says Kevin O’Donnell, Global Director, Sourcing & Operations Sustainability at General Mills. “We strongly believe farmers have a massive role to play in being a part of the solution. In fact, we don’t believe the world can adequately address climate change – and hit the targets it has set in order to avoid the most catastrophic and volatile impacts of climate change – without engaging agriculture.”
