Environmental markets: new opportunities for farmers and land managers
About Harry Greenfield
Harry Greenfield is Senior Land Use Adviser in the CLA’s London office. He leads on environmental issues within the CLA Land Use team, advising members on agri-environment schemes and nature conservation. He also develops policy positions to support the CLA’s engagement with the Government including on future environmental land management schemes, environmental policy and regulation, natural capital and environmental markets and Biodiversity Net Gain.
Prior to joining the CLA in 2018, he worked for 10 years in a number of roles related to farming and the environment. This included working in parliament for 3 years; working for a farmers’ producer organisation; and working on land use policy for a conservation organisation.
As environmental issues rise up the agenda, the Government, the public and businesses are looking at ways to improve the natural environment. Farmers and land managers are uniquely placed to deliver a wide range of environmental public goods – from clean water to thriving wildlife – and to be rewarded for doing so. This seminar will look at a range of opportunities including new ecological markets, government-funded schemes and private sector investment in natural capital.
