Event Details

Whether you’re looking to raise money from a bank or investors or address internal or external stakeholder pressure, having a sound ESG strategy has never been more important for the agriculture sector.

Banks, insurance companies and many other companies within agriculture companies’ supply chains will soon face mandatory ESG reporting requirements – and increasing pressure to make sure they’re doing business with sustainable companies. Similarly, public and private investors want to ensure the companies they finance are part of the solution to the world’s problems.

The agriculture sector has been rocked by global supply chain disruptions, climate change and an increasing population. To thrive in the years ahead, you need an ESG strategy with concrete plans for addressing climate change and social issues. In this half-day seminar with an option for attendees to join us virtually, we, along with several of our esteemed channel partners, will cover the basics of ensuring your ESG strategy is up to snuff.
