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.Learn more About CANZA
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.
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.
