The Canadian Alliance for Net-Zero Agri-food (CANZA) is a new national alliance to foster collaboration and innovation to drive Canada’s agri-food system towards net-zero.

CANZA brings together stakeholders from across the agri-food system in support of a net-zero agri-food value chain. CANZA’s action oriented agenda is focused on developing, testing and scaling innovative technologies, championing bold and transformative policy measures, and developing a national carbon market that will help enable and incentivize practice changes across Canada to mitigate 150 Mt of emissions from across the agri-food sector by 2050.

With a bias for action, CANZA is starting with two game-changing decarbonization initiatives

01Climate-Smart Farming Initiative

Embracing new climate-smart agricultural technologies, policies and practices has the potential to improve agricultural productivity, resilience and returns in ways that can benefit farmers and other food system stakeholders across Canada’s agri-food industry.

02National Biodigester Initiative

Scaling networks of agricultural anaerobic digesters can significantly reduce emissions in Canada’s food system by creating renewable energy, either for selling to the grid or for on-farm use. Additionally, digesters produce nutrient-rich digestate that can enhance crop yields when applied to fields.
