A national coalition convened by the Noble Research Institute announced its intent to create a new voluntary environmental services market that benefits agricultural producers and improves the environment for society at large.
Since the Noble Research Institute announced the creation of the new voluntary ecosystem services market Feb. 21, the steering committee and eight working committees guiding the effort have been exceptionally busy. This week, a request for proposals will be released to select companies to solicit an agency of record to support the ESM program.
The ESM team has continued with collaborative engagement activities across the full range of the agricultural supply and value chains, including with farm and ranching communities, commodity groups, and potential corporate partners. Work also continues on technical issues, including development of the technical and logistical requirements of a platform to collect and store data and track progress of the overall program.
