Regenerative farming fights climate change
How does regenerative farming fight climate change?
Regenerative agriculture fights climate change
Unlike conventional farming, regenerative farming removes CO2 from the atmosphere and stores it into the ground. It improves biodiversity, keeps nutrients from leaking into water bodies, and provides more and better crops at the same time. It also protects the crops against drought and insects, and helps the soil retain more water.
It’s a new way of farming that requires a big shift in thinking how we use the land in a way that is sustainable for generations to come.The large-scale effects of regenerative agriculture could be huge. If these practices were used on all the world’s croplands and pastures forever, we could potentially remove up to 322 billion tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. This is 10 times the current yearly global emissions.
Long-term commitment to regeneratively farmed barley
Koskenkorva is committed to working with regeneratively farmed barley for the long-term. We will offer training all our contract farmers in regenerative farming practices by 2025 to increase the supply of all regeneratively farmed grains. That’s because the benefits are not limited only to fighting climate change but they also help farmers get better yields by making their land more fertile and resistant.
Koskenkorva Vodka Climate Action is the first vodka in the world made entirely from regeneratively farmed barley. Regenerative farming fights climate change by removing CO2 from the atmosphere and storing it into the ground.
Baltic Sea Action Group’s Carbon Action Platform
Koskenkorva is a part of the Baltic Sea Action Group’s worldwide Carbon Action Platform that aims to mitigate climate change by adopting regenerative farming practices. Introducing climate friendly, regenerative farming practices to Finnish farms is a big part of all this. Four farmers that supply barley to Koskenkorva are a part of this platform and test a variety of regenerative farming methods. This helps farmers make better use of their land and fight climate change at the same time.
