About this initiative
Today over 50% of the soil on agricultural land around the world is degraded. We have been working with clients and partners like the World Wildlife Fund to promote best farming practices that can help restore and sustain the soil while increasing crop yields.
Through Kickstart Earth we will scale up these and similar efforts around the world. By 2030, we aim to have 100% of our clients certified according to accepted sustainability certification schemes that include soil management practices.
Via Rabobank Foundation we will intensify our activities to promote, facilitate and finance sustainable farming practices among smallholder farmers.
