Public Equity Investing in Sustainable Food and Agriculture
Dear U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator and Members of Congress,
The planet needs more food―and more equitable food distribution―to meet the needs of a growing global population. According to the World Health Organization, roughly 45% of deaths among children under 5 years of age are linked to undernutrition. A 2021 FAO study found that 690 million people globally are hungry, 8.9% of the world population.
The planet needs more food―and more equitable food distribution―to meet the needs of a growing global population. Yet, agriculture and food production are a big part of the climate change problem, representing 19-29% of total greenhouse gas emissions.* Learn how Trillium’s thematic Sustainable Opportunities investment strategy aims to address this challenge.
