Last year’s Special Report from the IPCC was a timely reminder of the urgency to address a rapidly changing climate. The report identified carbon sinks as a necessary tool across all emissions-reduction scenarios to meet the ambition of the Paris Climate Agreement. Yet they are rarely the focus of today’s green finance efforts.

The time is now right to broaden our focus and accelerate the development of carbon sinks. The environmental benefits are clear, but what is less well understood is the commercial opportunity for both farms and food and agri businesses, as well as those who finance them all.

This workshop will be an opportunity to learn about the science and economics of regenerative agriculture practices that sequester carbon in farmland soils. It will create space for participants to share and develop their views of what the financial markets can do today, and where government could play a necessary role.

Speakers include:

  • Christian Didier, Nature and Sustainability Finance Director, Danone
  • Satya Tripathi, Assistant Secretary-General, United Nations
  • Chuck de Liedekerke, CEO of Soil Capital
  • Jeremy Grantham, Co-Founder of GMO (invited)

Alongside Government representatives, there will be a range of financial institutions, food and agri businesses and subject matter experts in attendance for a highly participatory session.

Places are invitation only.
