Sustainable Agriculture

INVESTMENT PORTFOLIO

 

Why Invest in Sustainable Agriculture?

Transforming the agriculture sector has the potential to improve the lives of millions of people living in poverty around the world. There is a growing need for fertile farmland that produce high-quality yields, yet poor land management, climate change, and damage to water resources increasingly threatens agricultural output.

Prevent Deforestation

Deforestation contributes to carbon emissions, biodiversity loss, and human rights violations. This portfolio invests in companies committed to sourcing key ingredients from only responsible and sustainable sources, and actively working towards zero deforestation.

Feed

The Planet

In addition to healthier soil and decreased groundwater pollution, organic farming helps pollinators thrive and produces more biodiversity than other farming systems. This portfolio invests in companies that we believe are leaders in the organic food space.

Promote

Resilient Practices

Agricultural production will have to increase an estimated 50% by 2050 to meet the needs of the growing population. This portfolio invests in companies that are implementing resilient agriculture practices to increase productivity, adapt to climate change, and improve soil quality.

Empower

Producers

This portfolio invests in companies that work with farmers to have more sustainable practices, specifically helping the productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers as the foundation for a sustainable agricultural system.
