Agriculture & Food Processing

The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that 31 percent of human-caused greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions come from the food and agriculture industry. With eight billion mouths to feed and growing, the most labour intensive, and operating in the most diverse socioeconomic conditions, this industry is indeed a focus for governments and regulators as the world pushes toward sustainability and net-zero emissions by 2050.

Exasperating the already difficult, diverse, and complex conditions under which this sector operates there is great disparity in the predisposition to adapt new and improved technology. Further, global economic improvements are creating greater demands for safe, nutritious and affordable food which forces producers and distributors to think outside the box, especially in developing nations. To safeguard the quality, safety and nutritional value of products, while simultaneously improving the conditions of human capital and protecting the environment, this sector is rapidly adapting to the principles and procedures of ESG framework.
