Create positive impact with regenerative agriculture

Your travel to IAC 2022 in Paris can generate up to 1 ton of CO2e. CNES is partnering with Rize to offer you the opportunity to contribute to emissions reduction projects and support French farmers.

About the Project

CNES is partnering with Rize to create climate action in the frame of IAC 2022 in Paris.

It is estimated that on average, an attendee of IAC 2022 will generate up to 1 ton of CO2e by travelling to the conference.  As an illustration, the emissions attached to your transport may represent:

- 0.1t CO2 for 2000 km by train (Paris-Nice both ways)
- 0.5t CO2 eq for 2200 km by flight (Paris-Rome both ways)
- 2t CO2 for 12000 km by flight (Paris-NY both ways)
- 6.8t CO2 eq for 37100 km by flight (Paris-Auckland both ways)
- 0,003 kg CO2 eq for 10 km by public transport in Paris

CNES and Rize are offering IAC attendees the opportunity to mitigate carbon emissions impact, through investing in French farmers' transitions to sustainable agricultural practices.

Contribute to mitigate your carbon impact at IAC 2022

30€ per 0.5 tons of CO2e (All taxes included)

It is estimated that on average an attendee of IAC 2022 will generate up to 1 ton of CO2e by participating in the event.

Each contribution of 30€ will remove 0,5 ton of CO2e and support farmers across France transitioning to regenerative agriculture.

Support carbon farming with Rize

Rize is an impact startup with a turn-key solution to support farmers in their transition to regenerative agriculture.

One way of incentivising farmers to transition to regenerative agriculture is through carbon farming, where farmers adopt new practices to enhance soil carbon sequestration, reduce their emissions and get carbon financing in return.

Rize offers farmers a digital platform where they can measure and follow their carbon credit generation projects - from the original footprint measurement, to project certification, to sale of the credits. Rize then uses satellite imagery to track the evolution of farming practices over time and ensure the reality of the transition.

What is regenerative agriculture?

A combination of sustainable agriculture techniques designed to regenerate soils, improve their health and vitality, and enhance ecosystem services.

Rize's Impact

All of the projects Rize develops have an impact on GHG emissions or on carbon storage. Beyond this positive impact on climate, notable benefits include:

Increased yields
Increased resilience to climate change effects such as droughts and floods
Lower dependence on farming inputs such as mineral fertiliser
Reduction of natural resources consumption
Social and financial recognition of farmers
Biodiversity, air and water quality enhancement

Farming and climate change mitigation

According to IPCC reports, we have to contain global warming temperatures below 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2100 to avoid severe climate disruptions. To achieve this, we collectively have to reduce GHG emissions.

One solution that we can immediately leverage is the development of carbon sinks through agricultural soils. While agriculture accounts for 25% of GHG emissions worldwide, it also plays a key role in climate change mitigation as it's the first natural carbon sink in Europe.

Rize offers the opportunity to improve our planet's carbon sink potential while also supporting farmers in their transition towards regenerative agriculture!

What is climate neutrality?

Climate neutrality refers to when net anthropogenic CO2 emissions are balanced globally by anthropogenic CO2 removals over a specified period. (source : IPCC)
