Future Farming

Agriculture is currently responsible for roughly 10% of the carbon emissions in the UK. Having left the European Union, this is an opportune moment to realign the way in which rural Britain interacts with nature. Communities up and down the country rely on this industry to survive, but for too long the subsidy regime has been skewed and our environment and biodiversity has suffered as a result. Going forward, it is imperative that nature restoration and sustainable farming practices are put front and centre of the Environmental Land Management scheme. Agriculture is one of the great frontiers of climate action and like the rest of our economy, they need to be aligned with our pursuit of net zero emissions.

This event examined future farming and how best to incentivise sustainable and environmentally positive land use over the next thirty years.
