There are major inefficiencies in the way food and land use systems are financed. Current practices typically fail to price in the hidden costs of climate-related financial, social and environmental risk. Transitioning to a more sustainable food and land use system will require capital to be reallocated from the “old” food and land use economy into the new one. New investment will also be needed – to the tune of $300 to $350 billion each year to 2030, which could generate a $4.5 trillion economic opportunity a year by 2030.
This event will profile leading investors and practitioners who have pioneered innovative new business models and financial solutions to mobilise capital at scale for sustainable food and land use assets. These proven examples are featured in a new report called “Better Finance, Better Food”, which includes over 50 case studies that describe ways to mobilise capital for nature-, people- and planet-positive projects in the food and land use sector around the world.
We look forward to welcoming you to an interactive session on innovative financing solutions and regenerative business models which help mobilise private capital for sustainable food and land use systems.
We will be hearing from leading investors and practitioners including:
- Hubert Keller, CEO of Lombard Odier
- Vineet Rai, Founder and Chairman of the Aavishkaar Group
- Tissa Aunilla, CEO of Pipiltin Chocolate
- Tanja Havemann, Founder of Clarmondial
- Peter Flottman, Director of Commercial Development, Greening Australia
- Diane Holdorf, Managing Director of Food and Nature, WBCSD
All participants will then join in a moderated discussion facilitated by Katherine Stodulka, Director of the Blended Finance Taskforce.
