Planet Tracker Financial Markets Roadmap for Transforming the Global Food System
The current food system generates estimated revenues of USD 15-19 trillion (equivalent to c. 20% of global GDP) but it is a significant source of harm to the climate, nature and society, is failing to provide sufficient nutritious food to a growing global population and is no longer fit for purpose. Unless the food system is transformed, humanity will fail to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C by 2050, restore nature and achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Unless the food system is transformed, humanity will fail to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C by 2050, restore nature and achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Private finance currently provides nearly USD 9 trillion of support to the food system and so has a major role to play in this transformation.

This webinar will discuss Planet Tracker’s ‘Financial Markets Roadmap for Transforming the Global Food System’, which analyses the relationship between private finance and the food system’s harmful footprint, and outlines what financial institutions need to do to support the development of a sustainable food system, including the priority actions they should take by 2030.

Planet Tracker will be joined by a panel of experts to discuss how the food system needs to transform, the implications for financial institutions and food system companies and the potential benefits for humanity and financial markets.

Mar 27, 2023 01:30 PM in London
