Environment & Sustainability

 
Policy Statement: The Canadian Canola Growers Association supports efforts directed at protecting Canadian agricultural production in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner.

 

 

 Sustainability Calculator Pilot

 

Being a sustainable farm is all about efficiency – from better utilization of fertilizer and fuel resources to retaining soil moisture to promote higher yields. Be part of shaping the future of how we measure sustainable production on the farm!

Farmers participating in this project will discover the drivers of their farm’s environmental footprint, and better understand how the production practices employed on their farm can drive even greater efficiencies while enhancing their environmental stewardship.

 

 Sustainability Metrics

 
In the quickly developing area of sustainability and food, retailers are trying to communicate the sustainability of their products to their customers. CCGA is working to ensure that the evolving systems reflect Canada's agronomic systems and acknowledge farmers for their sustainability production advances.

CCGA is a participant in the Canadian Keystone Sustainability Project, which researched and measured on-farm environmental indicators such as soil loss, greenhouse gas emissions, and energy use.
