Beef + Lamb New Zealand SPECIAL SERIES

What the World Can Learn From New Zealand About Sustainable Agriculture

Best known for its lush green landscapes, vast glacier lakes and stunning topography, the island nation of New Zealand is also emerging as a global leader in sustainable agriculture. With national industry standards like the New Zealand Farm Assurance Program, government efforts like investing in research and science-backed solutions, and the world’s first tax on agricultural emissions, farmers, policymakers and other stakeholders in the country are working to ensure its natural beauty and resources are preserved while continuing to provide the world with a bounty of agricultural exports. 

In this series sponsored by Beef + Lamb New Zealand, the farmer-owned industry organization representing New Zealand's sheep and beef farmers, we’ll take a closer look at the country’s sustainable farming systems, its aspirations for the future, and what the rest of the world can learn from its vision for a resilient food system that’s gentler on people, animals and the planet.
