We are pleased to welcome Sustainable Agriculture Initiative Platform (SAI Platform) as the newest formal Partner of the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA).

Both organisations are actively working to drive the development and adoption of more sustainable agriculture practices at scale while feeding the growing human population. With companies and Governments committed to targets on carbon reduction, nature, regenerative agriculture and human rights including livelihoods, the GRA and SAI Platform see real value in cooperating and supporting each other to achieve their common ambitions.

SAI Platform is a global, not-for-profit organisation transforming the food and drink industry to source and produce more sustainably. With almost 160 member companies of the food and drink industry, it is at the forefront in pioneering sustainable agriculture around the world.  It enables members to share expertise, create solutions to common challenges and promote sustainable agriculture in a precompetitive environment. By developing tools and principles it aims to create secure and resilient agricultural supply chains.

The GRA brings 66 countries together to find ways to grow more food without growing greenhouse gas emissions. It consists of member countries and partner organisations who contribute to the expertise and evidence-based research available through the GRA. Activities of the GRA are increasingly relevant to both global and national priorities as more importance is placed on global food security and addressing climate change.

We are excited to bring together the GRA’s research approach, backed by government membership, and SAI Platform’s on farm and industry supply chain approach, backed by food and beverage companies and farm input providers. By collaborating and sharing knowledge going forwards, we believe that both organisations will benefit greatly.

XXI International N Workshop

October 24 @ 8:00 am - October 28 @ 5:00 pm CEST

Agro-food systems are fuelled by nitrogen. About 80% of this valuable resource is lost to the environment before reaching our plates. We refer to this loss as nitrogen waste. The ambitious goal of halving nitrogen waste by 2030 requires important coordination of many actors: multidisciplinary scientists, farmers, industry, policy-makers, NGOs, and consumers. The XXI International N Workshop will contribute to this challenge by welcoming contributions dealing with different spatial scales (from the plot to global) and system scopes (crop, livestock,…
