ROOTED IN AGRICULTURE
Over 50 years of combined experience working with farmers and ranchers, we provide clients with unparalleled expertise in conservation and sustainability.
GLOBAL IN PERSPECTIVE
As a Benefit Corporation we have the purpose of creating a positive impact on the environment and society, and assisting others in realizing, expanding, and surpassing their conservation and sustainability goals.
FOCUSED ON THE FUTURE
We want to ensure that all 9 billion people inhabiting the Earth in 2050 will have the same agricultural bounty, clean air, abundant and clean water, plentiful wildlife and healthy environment we enjoy today.
what we do:
We work with clients to identify goals, develop solutions, and devise and execute comprehensive strategies for all agricultural, conservation and sustainability needs.
With superb access to the House, Senate, and Administration, the 9b Group can – from concept to implementation – help formulate strategies, develop campaigns, and guide proposals through both administrative and legislative processes.
We can effectively communicate our client’s position to Congress and the Administration by providing strategic advice, analysis, key messaging points, briefs, as well as through coalition building. Additionally we can aid in providing extended comments to rules and regulations.
While we specialize in conservation and sustainability, we also have substantial expertise in areas such as Farm and Commodity programs, International Food Aid, Trade and Market Access, Forestry, Crop Insurance and Risk Management.
We are committed to helping clients partner with associations, producer groups, farmer cooperatives, state or local governments, native tribes, water districts, institutions of higher learning, agribusiness, food companies, corporations and many others organizations to achieve conservation goals.
why we do it:
That is how many people farmers will have to feed in just a few short decades. Dr. Norman Borlaug predicted that to do this, we would need to produce as much food in the next forty years as we have in the past ten thousand years — combined.
In the United States, 70 percent of the land is owned by private individuals, with the vast majority devoted to agriculture. Without question, keeping agricultural land productive will be critical to meeting food demands, while protecting the health and resilience of our environment.
The challenge is clear and complex. The opportunity is great. Everyone must find ways to increase agricultural production, safeguard our environment, protect our wildlife, and ensure economic vitality, all while confronting the realities of an increasingly erratic climate and a changing consumer.
All this adds up to a firm that is as committed to its clients as it is to this social mission.
who we are:
We bring a dynamic team approach to our clients.
In the agricultural arena we know that true bipartisanship yields measurable and successful results. The partners of the 9b Group provide clients with unparalleled expertise in conservation and sustainability. Together, we have over 50 years of combined experience working with farmers and ranchers achieving results through voluntary, incentive-based conservation on private lands.
We are incorporated as a Benefit Corporation with the purpose of creating a positive impact on the environment and society. 9b Group is the only benefit corporation working on consulting and lobbying for conservation issues in Washington, D.C.
Our name represents our focus on sustainability. We want to ensure that all 9 billion people inhabiting the Earth in 2050 will have the same agricultural bounty, clean air, abundant and clean water, plentiful wildlife and healthy environment we enjoy today.
