How should the impacts of the food system be reflected in the corporate accounting and reporting of the food sector?

22 March 2021; 14.00-16.00 GMT – Register now

The food system is the number two global contributor to climate change, the number one global contributor to biodiversity loss, the number one land user, and is the number one global contributor to preventable disease and death due to malnutrition in all forms.

Investors are increasingly asking the agriculture and food sector to account for key risks and societal impacts. A spectrum of non-financial accounting and impact valuation methods have been developed and implemented in response.

This webinar features leading developers of accounting and valuation methods for food system impact.
