CEA Footprint Project

An industry-led initiative to standardize the environmental understanding of modern farming methods.

The goals of the initiative are to:
  • Develop an international environmental accounting framework through consensus to enable complete, consistent, ongoing evaluation of modern farming methods
  • Provide tools to enable CEA producers and stakeholders to adopt standardized measurement as put forth by the CEA Footprint Project
  • Advance a broader understanding of the environmental benefits and impacts of CEA at a critical inflection point
