Reducing Emissions from Fertilizer Use Report Executive Summary – Chinese version
Published by IFA and Systemiq, the Reducing Emissions from Fertilizer Use report (Scope 3) outlines how greenhouse gas emissions from global mineral nitrogen fertilizer use can be reduced by 70% by 2050. More than half of these emissions could be achieved by applying existing fertilizer technologies and best management practices. This 85-page report provides recommendations to fertilizer companies, farmers, their advisers and policy makers on how to cut GHG emissions while continuing to support food production. It includes an analysis of six global agricultural regions and the opportunities for emissions reductions in these systems, including cost saving opportunities for farmers.
