The state of global agriculture is at a crossroads between climate change, land and water resources, and rising populations.

The current US $110 Billion produce market is unsustainable. When combined with the effects of climate change, this poses an increasing challenge to our ability to feed ourselves.

The pressure on our ability to feed ourselves is increasing rapidly, presenting challenges and opportunities unprecedented in human history.

By 2050, the world’s population will near 10 billion people, and in order to meet rising demand, humans must grow as much food in the next few decades as has been grown in the last eight-thousand years. Agriculture needs to increase yields by reinventing the way it produces, processes, packages, transports, stores and distributes food. Water and land resources have been depleted at unprecedented rates over the last few decades.

ESG’s solution is responsible, radical, and resilient.

To address those challenges and rise to the opportunities, Empire State Greenhouses is building beyond net zero, carbon negative Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) facilities focused on food security, sustainability, and the improvement of agricultural infrastructure and the environment.

Empire State Greenhouses is on a mission to build 100% renewable energy powered carbon negative vertical farms to feed an ever-hungrier planet. Join us on our journey.
