Shining a Light on AIM4C

About the Shining a Light on AIM4C Series

The agricultural sector — a key driver of global warming — is coming under increasing pressure to cut emissions. At the upcoming climate summit, the U.S.- and UAE-led AIM4C will be pushing for investment in high-tech farming innovations. But will the solutions they are cheerleading — from “greening cattle” to “carbon farming” — really address the climate crisis and world hunger?

In the lead-up to COP27, DeSmog will scrutinize the AIM4C coalition, whose partners include highly polluting and powerful companies with a commercial interest in business-as-usual. And explore what other motives may lie behind agribusiness’s embrace of the green agenda.
