Cooling the Planet to Feed the World
Greening the Earth (GTE) improves the soils of the earth to address climate change – creating quality carbon credits by restoring the natural capital of marginal and under-performing Australian farming landscape that uniquely embed Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) values as a way of life for all.
Human Impact on the Environment
Human expansion encroaches on the natural world, and many agricultural practices deplete soil rather than regenerating the land
The global food and water crisis
The world does not have enough productive land to grow sufficient food to feed an estimated 10 billion people by 2050
Global water use has grown at more than twice the rate of the global population over the past ten years
The nations of the world are struggling to meet their carbon neutrality goals in their attempt to mitigate climate change
The solution turns millions of acres of under-performing marginal land into productive farmland using regenerative agriculture to create a wave of permanent new jobs; reduce water needs; restore soil fertility and biodiversity and offset millions of tonnes of carbon emissions annually.
The positive flow-on consequences embed a process that extend Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) values beyond the accepted realm of listed corporations for adoption by everybody – small business, not for profit groups and the man in the street.
The outcome is a better world whereby soil carbon generated by Australian farms not only improves the quality of the nation’s soils, but creates the world’s largest and most productive carbon sink, producing millions of tonnes of quality Australian carbon credit units (ACCUs) to:
- Improve farm productivity and land values from regenerative agriculture to permanently remediate land that otherwise would remain marginal and under-productive;
- Provide a raft of permanent new jobs for aboriginal and rural Australians in remote areas where opportunity is limited;
- Apply species that slow the progress of bush-fire and flood – recovering quickly from both while protecting oceans, rivers, and streams from effluent runoff;
- Reduce and reverse desertification and loss of topsoil while generating new opportunities from improved grazing and cash crops for fodder and processing for livestock pellets and high-protein food additives and wellness products; and
- Deliver the opportunity to produce net negative emissions dispatchable renewable energy from biomass that does not compete against fertile landscape sustaining the global food chain.
