Greening the Global Shopping Cart

EDF+Business is proud to present the Greening the Global Shopping Cart webinar series.

A webinar with Jenny Ahlen, EDF.

Globally, agriculture is responsible for one-third of greenhouse gas emissions. Excess use of nitrogen fertilizer produces a greenhouse gas 300x more powerful than CO2, and an estimated $412m in fertilizer runs off into streams and rivers each year as pollution. At the same time, raising sheep, cattle, chickens and hogs is responsible for 18% of all GHGs—more than the combined exhaust from all transportation. Jenny Ahlen, EDF, will give a high-level overview of best practices, strategies, programs and collaborations that companies can take advantage of in pursuit of their Project Gigaton goal.
