CRA’s Climate Change Policy Principles guide the industry’s advocacy to ensure a more sustainable future for corn refining, agriculture, and consumers. These five principles include:
CRA strives to identify and undertake initiatives to reduce the overall carbon footprint of corn refining products and processes.
CRA advocates that any greenhouse gas reduction goals and targets be grounded in science, in addition to being clear, measurable, and achievable over time.
CRA advocates for research, technical assistance, and incentives to support the adoption of agricultural practices that sequester carbon into the soil.
CRA advocates for policies that help energy-intensive industries adapt to potential federal or state carbon reduction policies.
CRA advocates for the recognition of agricultural feedstocks in industrial processes as a key element in advancing greenhouse gas reductions.
CRA’s many years as an Admitted Non-Governmental Organization Observer to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change shows the commitment of this industry to action on climate change.
