Making impact with
Food & Agriculture
Today, our food system is neither scalable nor efficient enough to keep up with future demand. With an agricultural system responsible for 26% of all GHG emissions, we need to create a food system that can feed 10 billion people sustainably by 2050, without expanding the land and water use for agriculture or increasing GHG emissions.
There is no single answer, and we need to accelerate and invest in multiple solutions to tackle this relevant global challenge. To create a sustainable food system, we need to reduce food waste, improve soil & water management, shift to more sustainable diets and improve crop breeding.
The Market Opportunity
The opportunity in food is massive and touches every human on earth. The estimated total addressable market of plant-based foods alone is projected to reach $74 billion by 2027. US Dollar sales of plant-based foods grew by 27% in 2020 reaching $7 billion, 2x faster than the overall food market.
Investments in the transition to a more sustainable food system contribute to reducing 26% of global GHG emissions and could save 75% of freshwater resources. Investing in sustainable food touches a broad range of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, including responsible consumption and production, climate action, good health and well-being and zero hunger. By creating a more efficient and scalable food system we can minimise harmful emissions, reduce land degradation, improve consumers’ diets and reduce starvation.
