Presentation: Investing in a sustainable food and water system and why it should matter to investors
By 2050 the world will need to produce 70% more food and drinking water, whilst producing less carbon and using 70% fewer resources. The current global food and water system is grossly unsustainable. Regulation, consumer behaviour, and new technology are changing fast, and are now starting to impact the long overdue change. This change will require $30trillion of capital reallocation by 2050, creating significant opportunities for investors. How can investors enable this shift? Join our session.
