LDC, Nature Conservancy Collaborating on Regen Ag, Deforestation, and Conversion-Free Production

With a shared goal of mitigating climate change and enhancing biodiversity and ecosystem services, Louis Dreyfus Company (LDC) and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) are collaborating to promote and implement regenerative agriculture and habitat conservation practices in strategic agricultural supply chains.

This collaboration between two major global players within their respective spheres is expected to shift sentiment for commitment to on-the-ground implementation and impact toward a net-zero, nature-positive role for agri commodities. 

The initiative will be global in scale and cross-commodity in nature, focusing initially on grain and oilseed value chains, along with cotton and coffee. It will build upon LDC’s existing commitment to eliminate deforestation and conversion of native vegetation for agricultural purposes from its supply chains by the end of 2025. 

LDC’s regenerative agriculture plan targets a minimum of 3 million acres and 30,000 farmers in selected commodity supply chains by 2030, and will focus on holistic farming system transformation and adoption of practices that improve soil health, restore aquifers, promote biodiversity, and mitigate climate change while increasing farmer profitability and resilience over time.
