Agriculture is facing some of the world’s biggest development, economic, and environmental challenges. With the current world population expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050, demand for food, feed, fibre and fuel will surge. To address the growing demand for food, it is essential to increase agricultural protection for a growing population without overextending our human, social and natural planetary boundaries.
Thankfully, investors are tackling these challenges by focusing on sustainable investments. Research shows that sustainable investments have nearly doubled in the last two years and that 75% of investors believe that companies benefit in the long-term when business decisions take account of sustainability. To guide these investments, the agriculture industry is pioneering new approaches to measure and value the impact of sustainable business decisions.
