Decarbonising the agri-food sector

Decarbonising the agri-food sector

In the era of decarbonisation, companies are facing a critical juncture as regulations on the impact of carbon are tightened.

The conversion plans imposed by European and French legislation require a comprehensive reassessment of business activity. Management must review their portfolios, reshape operations and rethink relationships with suppliers to achieve decarbonisation goals. This involves aligning corporate strategies with emissions targets, which is particularly important in sectors such as agri-food where expectations are high and emissions are significant. Let’s see how new regulations and wider environmental requirements are changing strategies in the agri-food sector.  

 

 

An increasingly stringent decarbonisation regulatory framework 

 

Decarbonisation directives (COP21, COP24, COP28) are now enshrined in European and French law. These oblige companies to combat climate change, in particular through the BEGES system for large companies and the CSRD. The introduction of the European Taxonomy in 2022 emphasises the need for companies to assess their environmental impact. 

 

 

Strategic and operational changes related to the decarbonisation plans to be implemented 

 

Analysing the entire value chain is essential in order to take into account the carbon emissions of all parties involved. In the agri-food sector, this means rethinking the processes from raw material production to the end consumer. Managing cross-functional projects in companies requires a high degree of coordination and conviction in order to be successful. Agri companies must also ensure accountability for emissions across their value chain. This requires strategic partnerships, effective control measures, and targeted divestment or acquisition strategies. Collaboration is key, emphasizing shared best practices, resource pooling, and engagement with suppliers and competitors.
