CINCINNATI, OHIO — April 11, 2023 — BiOWiSH Technologies, Inc., a leading global provider of biotechnology solutions for the agriculture, aquaculture, and environmental management industries, has become a Pond Foundation member.
BiOWiSH joins the small, but growing rank of companies committed to taking the strongest, most credible regenerative action for people and the planet. Pond Foundation members understand that taking the strongest action on climate change – being truly Carbon Zero – means understanding your corporate footprint and making plans to remove 100% of your legacy carbon from the atmosphere.
Supported by Pond Foundation’s team, BiOWiSH will determine its Lifetime Carbon Balance (LCB), which is the amount of carbon emissions generated by its operations since its founding. It will progressively invest in carbon sequestration programs to remove that LCB from the atmosphere. It will implement emissions reduction initiatives and will continue to strengthen and implement its sustainability strategy to maximize its positive social and environmental impact.
Key to its actions on sustainability, BiOWiSH Technologies’ signature product, BiOWiSH® Crop Liquid, helps farmers to reduce their environmental impact while optimizing yield potential by improved nutrient uptake. In over 320 independent studies around the world and covering a wide range of major crops, BiOWiSH® Crop Liquid has been shown to provide an average 7.7% crop yield increase using significantly less fertilizer inputs. In parallel, a reduction in the land area required to produce the same amount of food results in carbon emission reductions and provides opportunities for additional carbon sequestration.
Through this, BiOWiSH® products reduce the carbon burden per ton of food produced, help condition soil for improved plant performance and may provide farmers with increased return on investment. BiOWiSH will thus also play a critical role in Pond Foundation’s Regen 21 initiative, to build regenerative agricultural systems, particularly in regions where soils are degraded, and growing conditions are challenged by climate change.
“Our agricultural solutions are designed to help farmers maximize productivity and increase income, while simultaneously improving environmental outcomes,” said Rod Vautier, President of BiOWiSH Technologies. “We are excited to become the newest Pond Foundation members, and we are committed to minimizing our own carbon footprint while leading by example in carbon removals.”
“BiOWiSH is already reducing carbon emissions generated from the food sector and improving soils and farmers’ livelihoods. These are critical regenerative actions we need more of,” said Scott Poynton, Pond Foundation’s Founder and Chief Inspiration Officer. “It’s great that the BiOWiSH leadership team has decided to go further, with us, to remove their Lifetime Carbon Balance from the atmosphere, and to explore what we can do, together, to support the charge to regenerative agriculture.”
The recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Report, compiled by the world’s leading climate scientists, highlights that we’re unlikely to meet the Paris Agreements’ 1.5oC global warming target. The predicted consequences of overshooting this target are dire. Every company, every leadership team, can do more to support the actions needed to avert this crisis. Pond Foundation members, including BiOWiSH Technologies, are playing their part in the regenerative actions the world most urgently needs.
