By 2050, the global population will reach 10 billion people. Feeding the world, preventing the depletion of non-renewable resources, and avoiding food waste are key issues to address. Indeed, intensive farming is responsible for the extinction of many different species and habitats and drains 70% of our freshwater resources worldwide. There is a delicate balance to be struck between biodiversity and agrifood: the effects of one action can be seen at every stage of the value chain. To facilitate a more responsible transition, the financial sector is already redirecting its investments in order to limit its carbon footprint. What are the stakes of biodiversity? What are the impacts of agriculture and food production? How can we finance greener and more responsible agriculture? Two experts from asset management companies affiliated to Natixis Investment Managers, respond to these questions in this podcast: Etienne Vicent Head of Quant Strategy & Marketing at Ossiam and Isabelle Pajot, Portfolio manager Thematics AAA Consumer at Thematics Asset Management.
