Food and land

Land and carbon accounting

We specialise in applying research to land use management, with a focus on optimising biodiversity in agricultural settings. We also advise on effective nature-based solutions for mitigating the climate emergency, such as through peatland, wetland and forestry carbon sinks.

In addition to our Carbon Management and Big Picture Thinking work, our consultancy services support organisational change towards achieving Net Zero emissions. Our approach is evidence-based and considers social responsibility, conservation, ecosystem restoration, and other real-world challenges, in addition to opportunities for carbon-negative emissions.


We have worked with small individual estates like Holker Hall and Gardens, to large landscape areas, including all 15 of the UK's National Parks and all 5 Welsh AONBs.

Global food systems research

The global population is projected to reach 9.8 billion by 2050. Food production and distribution will become an even more urgent issue, not just as demand increases but as agricultural land suffers the impact of the climate emergency with increased floods, droughts and storms. Land use must also balance food production, storing carbon, restoring nature, and providing sustainable livelihoods for rural populations around the world. 

We have conducted various research projects to map food flows for the global population, focusing on nutrient and calorie requirements, food waste, and consumer behaviours.

We work with businesses in food production and hospitality. We research the full supply chain carbon emissions of ingredients and advise on which changes will have the biggest impacts in reducing emissions.
