On World Environment Day, we join in protecting and restoring our natural resources.

Reimagine. Recreate. Restore.

Tomorrow is the launch of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration and there can be no greater aim than to protect that which supports all of life on Earth.  Greenleaf recommits itself, as we do each and every day, to protecting and restoring environmental resources and systems that enable life to flourish.

Climate Change has become part of our common lexicon because of its vast influence altering the atmospheric forces that affect land and water systems in a manner unparalleled in human history.  Understanding ecosystems and societies’ influence on these, so that collectively we can protect and restore them as we transition toward a more sustainable world, is our mission.  We see rising commitments toward this aim given that the consequences of environmental degradation are increasingly being experienced and risks are more clearly understood than before.

Restoring our soils through regenerative agriculture can sequester carbon while preventing nutrient runoff from agricultural lands, reducing soil erosion, and creating more resilient farms. We are working to advance regenerative agriculture by enabling farmers to measure and monitor carbon sequestration and participate in carbon markets.

This decade can become one where societies across the planet commit to protect that which envelops Earth in its life-giving forces by rapidly reducing carbon emissions and restoring our carbon sinks.  We are one with today’s environmental movement that breathes life into our tomorrows.
