October 13, 2022 (Source) – TrustBIX Inc. (TSXV: TBIX) (OTCQB: TBIXF) (“TrustBIX” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the Canadian Forage and Grassland Association (“CFGA”) has selected its BIX Impact ESG reporting solution to support the launch of the On-Farm Climate Action Fund for producers in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Quebec.
“The program supports producers interested in adopting beneficial management practices (“BMPs”) that store carbon and reduce greenhouse gases in areas such as nitrogen management, cover cropping and rotational grazing practices,” explains Cedric MacLeod, Executive Director of the CFGA. “We engaged TrustBIX because of their established trust and track record in the livestock sector for programs of this nature.”
Carlene Schneider, CFGA Knowledge Translation and Transfer Manager adds, “BIX Impact streamlines the application and reporting process for everyone, enabling our advisors and verifiers to engage producers in the program faster. It also allows CFGA to focus more resources on the farmer and on-farm implementation and support through the planning process.”
“Our goal is to help producers implement new management practices that enhance carbon removal opportunities that make a real difference to their operation with support from the Agriculture Climate Solutions On-Farm Climate Action Fund,” says Travis Quirk, OFCAF Project Manager.
This project uses BIX Impact, the latest enhancement to the BIX platform, allowing TrustBIX customers to strategically qualify operations, aggregate data for strategic sourcing and ESG reporting. It allows multiple programs to be run concurrently for producers and ensure their information remains private and confidential.
TrustBIX has worked closely with CFGA to develop producer resources supporting them to navigate the online application process, including linking the application to CFGA mentor networks, reference resources, training opportunities and access to technical support. “This project builds on TrustBIX’s extensive experience with chain-of-custody solutions for all levels of the supply chain, from producers to consumers and our goal to become a global leader for traceability in the agri-food business,” says TrustBIX Chief Innovation Officer, Tom Ogaranko.
