Sustainable Agriculture 2022

Sustainable Agriculture 2022

In June of this year, we hosted our Sustainable Agriculture Conference in-person at the M-Shed in Bristol. The focus for the conference was “Restoring Habitats and Feeding a Nation”.

The conference was part of #SustainableBristolWeek in collaboration with Future Leap and Bristol Museums. It was great to be joined by so many of you to debate some significant issues facing the agriculture sector including climate change, biodiversity loss and food security.

We discussed those issues against the backdrop of the important and fast-developing challenges that the industry is facing including the competing policies regarding the environment and food security. We also heard how innovations and practices within the sector are helping to address crucial questions around sustainability.

This edition of Sustainable Agriculture continues some of the themes held at the conference.

  • Harry Trick provides an insight into the growth of impact investing in agriculture
