Report Overview

Regenerative agriculture has gained considerable traction within the agri-food sector as a way of reducing the environmental and social harm associated with conventional production practices. Although there is no universally accepted definition, the practices associated with regenerative agriculture focus on positive environmental and social outcomes.

The objective of FAIRR’s thematic report on regenerative agriculture is to assess the growing number of regenerative agriculture commitments across publicly listed agri-food companies to understand whether these are meaningful enough to deliver climate, nature and social goals. This is a first-of-its-kind analysis of commitments on regenerative agriculture by 79 global food and retail giants, worth over $3 trillion and representing almost a third of the sector.
