#ETtalks Insights present a carbon-neutral agriculture sector, at Agritechnica 2019, Hanover
Meet us in Hanover
This year at Agritechnica, we will be showcasing why our solutions are so relevant in all agricultural seasons of the year, focusing on sustainability, efficiency and productivity. You can learn more about our application development centers (ADCs) and how we are working with innovative and relevant technologies for the agricultural industry. We want to show you how we can collaborate for the future and enable the transformation together.
The world is on the verge of a transformation
A transformation, in which the climate becomes the core of our businesses. Today’s reality is driving ever more ambitious goals, with more and more companies and countries making a pledge to become carbon-neutral. It’s about time to set a vision for the food production sector, with a new #ETtalks Insights edition. Experience taught us that this where the transformation starts: we need a bold target and collective action from key stakeholders: policy makers, technology experts, and farmers.
Putting words into action at Agritechnica, the leading forum on farming technology, on November 12th and 13th
Following the well-known formula, the new #ETtalks Insights edition explores the topic of carbon-neutrality for food production, with focus on electrification as one of the key levers to transform farming machinery for a sustainable future.
