2023 was a monumental year in accelerating progress towards agriculture resilience, capped by a COP28 climate summit that centered around food systems like never before. Reflecting on the last twelve months, what did we learn, and how should that inform our 2024 sustainability strategies? What trends will accelerate, shift or be left behind? And what emerging movements will drive the industry, and your organization, closer to its decarbonization goals?
Join Shalini Unnikrishnan, Managing Director and Partner with Boston Consulting Group, and Anastasia Volkova, Regrow CEO and co-founder, for a discussion of 2023 learnings and what you need to know entering 2024.
Join a candid conversation between two of the leading voices in food and ag, covering their thoughts on trends like:
- The evolution from sustainability to resilience as a core business objective and risk management strategy
- The transformative power of competitive co-investment in supply chains
- The emergence of "stacked benefits," as more programs are launched with water, biodiversity and other ecosystem outcomes in mind
This conversation has the potential to shape your approach to 2024's sustainability challenges and opportunities, so make sure to bring your questions for a live Q&A. Don't miss the chance to participate on January 26th at 3:00 pm EST / 12:00 am PST.
