CompEnSate: Revolutionizing Sustainable Agriculture with Advanced EF Management

Eurostars Grant Fuels Expansion of Nature Preserve's Environmental Footprint Database to Agriculture, in Partnership with Nara Space

Funded by

In an exciting development for sustainable agriculture, Nature Preserve has been awarded a significant EU grant to expand its groundbreaking Environmental Footprint (EF) database to the agriculture sector. This expansion is made possible through a strategic partnership with Nara Space Technology, a pioneering company in satellite-based global data networks and big data analysis for earth observation. 

The CompEnSate Project: Revolutionizing Agricultural Environmental Footprint Management 

The project, named CompEnSate, aims to develop a Tier-2 EF management tool tailored for the agriculture sector. This tool is designed to be both accurate and user-friendly, combining Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)-based Environmental Footprint computation with minimized data collection through satellite monitoring and a robust data validation process. 

The Challenge of Environmental Footprinting in Agriculture 

In the face of increasing pressure from net-zero emission policies and SBTi FLAG targets, the agricultural sector is urgently seeking ways to report and reduce its environmental footprint. Traditional methods of assessing and managing this footprint have often been hampered by a lack of precise data, leading to generalized, unscalable, and sometimes inaccurate approaches. This is where CompEnSate steps in, offering a solution that is as innovative as is necessary. 

CompEnSate: A Tier-2 Environmental Footprint Management Tool 

The Power of Tier-2 Analysis 

CompEnSate presents an advanced Tier-2 Environmental Footprint Analysis Tool, surpassing the basic Tier-1 approach. Unlike Tier-1, which depends on global averages and yields generalized solutions, Tier-2 provides a more detailed analysis at the national to regional level. This detailed method requires a substantial amount of data, making the process of collection and validation both intricate and extremely time intensive. 

Simplifying Complexity with Satellite Monitoring 

This is where the synergy with Nara Space Technology becomes pivotal. By combining satellite technology with peer-reviewed scientific data, CompEnSate can gather comprehensive data on geographical factors, soil characteristics, climate conditions and various plant emission factors. This data feeds into the Environmental Footprint analysis, automating the process and enhancing its accuracy.  

Beyond Mere Analysis: Tools for Precise Location-Based Emission Reduction and Carbon Sequestration 

CompEnSate goes beyond standard analytical offerings, introducing advanced tools for precise location-based emission reduction and carbon sequestration at the field level. These tools provide farmers with actionable insights, enabling them to forecast crop health, predict yields accurately, and implement efficient resource management strategies. Additionally, they offer tailored plans for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and enhancing carbon sequestration in agricultural practices. This dual approach not only facilitates effective environmental management but also contributes to increased agricultural productivity and sustainability. 

A Step Forward in Sustainable Agriculture

The Eurostar grant and our partnership with Nara Space, represents a significant leap forward in our mission to enable more environmentally cautious food production. By providing detailed, reliable, and accessible data, Nature Preserve, in collaboration with Nara Space, is empowering farmers, distributors, food processors, retailers and other stakeholders in the agricultural supply chain to make more environmentally responsible decisions.
