Agriculture, Trade & Climate

Around 15% of global GHGs are related to agricultural production.  That number is higher when you consider forestry and land use change.  As climate change affects rainfall and temperature, the location and nature of crop systems are likely to change. We believe that our sector will need to adapt.

To ensure Bunge is ready, we are expanding our asset network and product portfolio to ensure diversity of supply, reducing emissions in our own operations and working to integrate climate scenario analysis more fully into our long-term planning and risk management.

At the same time, agricultural trade will serve as an important tool for adaptation and resilience.

As the global map of agriculture changes, trade will help address supply shocks and maximize total environmental efficiency.

Reducing Emissions Intensity

Bunge has emissions intensity reduction goals.  Between 2014 and 2016, we reduced CO2/ton of production by 3%.  That’s on top of a 12% reduction between 2011 and 2013.  As our operations grow, they are becoming more climate friendly.

You can learn more about our GHG footprint, risks, plans and reduction efforts in our CDP submissions.

Deforestation

Deforestation is a major contributor to GHG emissions.  Bunge has zero-deforestation commitments across all of our value chains, and we are collaborating with other companies, NGOs and governments to break the connection between agricultural production and forest loss.  Read more at Zero deforestation.
