Climate change is affecting every country on every continent. We know from the IPCC’s 2018 Special Report that Climate-related risks to livelihoods, food security and water supply among others are projected to increase with global warming of 1.5°C and increase further with 2°C. Yet today, the world is on track to warm by more than 3°C by 2100.

Farmers are one of the most vulnerable groups to climate change in both developing and developed nations, and are a cornerstone of every food supply chain including the hops and barley in our beers. There is an urgent need to ramp up efforts to help smallholder farmers in particular cope with existing changes and to adapt to future climatic conditions. The risk we face is that as a result of climate change, the stability of food supply globally is projected to decrease as the magnitude and frequency of extreme weather events that disrupt food chains increases.

Beyond responding to climate change, actions to reduce emissions are also urgently required within Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU), where activities account for 23% of humanity’s greenhouse gas emissions. The largest contributors in this sector are methane produced by livestock and enteric fermentation, collectively accounting for 50% of agricultural emissions.

Overcoming these challenges requires new technologies and support to build new skills that can improve adaptive capacities and mitigate the effects of a changing climate.

At Asahi, beyond eliminating our own climate impact as part of our Asahi Carbon Zero campaign, we are also working with farmers to help them adapt and prepare for a changing climate. This includes through Campus Peroni in Italy, a centre of excellence promoting and spreading innovation and sustainability in agriculture, Biocycle in Japan, a plant bio-stimulant which reduces the effects of external stresses on crops, and many other local partnerships with farmers, co-operatives and academia in countries where we operate.

Asahi is proud to support the Lead 2030 Challenge for SDG 13. The Challenge aims to find and support solutions that will contribute to the future of sustainable agriculture by supporting and enabling farmers to reduce their emissions and/or help adaptation and resilience against the climate challenges of this decade and beyond. The challenge welcomes solutions from young innovators that:
