But 34% Greenhouse gas emissions also come from the agricultural and food supply chain, and reducing carbon emissions in the agricultural and food sector will help achieve the 1.5-degree goal." As a non-profit organization focusing on the green and low-carbon transformation of agriculture and food in the field of climate science and technology in China, the Center for a Sustainable Future will rely on its own platform advantages to build a cross-disciplinary communication and collaboration platform around key areas such as 'norms, standards, training, quantification, and piloting'. Link nearly 400 institutions in the fields of agriculture and food, science and technology, economy, climate, finance and other fields to strengthen international exchanges, promote the deep integration of low-carbon projects, achievements, technologies and markets, guide the market to form carbon reduction development expectations, and accelerate future agricultural and food innovation and diversity transformation.
