McDonald’s USA announced they have committed $5 million over the next five years to develop and implement climate-smart agricultural solutions. Partnering with AgMission, a global organization comprised of the Foundation for Food & Agriculture Research (FFAR), the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) and the World Farmers’ Organization (WFO), the dollars will go toward AgMission’s research on coordinating and accelerating the adoption of agricultural practices that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The announcement comes as part of increased effort McDonald’s is putting toward reaching their global goal of net zero emissions by 2050. Even as agriculture only accounts for less than 10% of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, it remains the only industry with natural potential to be net negative in GHG emissions.
