Washington, November 1, 2021 – The Sustainable Food Policy Alliance (SFPA), including members Danone North America, Mars, Incorporated, Nestlé USA, and Unilever United States, submitted comments on the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Request for Information regarding “Climate-Smart Agriculture and Forestry Partnership Program.”
Our comments reflect how SFPA member companies are investing in climate-smart agriculture now and engaging with various types of farms and agricultural systems spanning hundreds of thousands of acres across our supply chains. In addition, the comments build on our Climate Policy Principles and Priorities, which were updated and revised in 2021 to account for the changing political and corporate landscape and our members’ own ambitious company-specific goals.
The SFPA applauds USDA’s Request for Information on “Climate-Smart Agriculture and Forestry Partnership Program” as it aligns government programs and initiatives with how non-governmental and private industry is engaging with farmers on sustainable and carbon initiatives in agriculture.
