Focus on Change: Food Systems
03 Aug 2023 - Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
Our Focus on Change series explores some of the issues relating to the climate transition and the pursuit of net zero. In this article, we explore the subject of food systems which contribute around one-quarter of global annual greenhouse gas emissions.
We all need to eat, but have you thought about the pressures that exist within our food-supply chains? The war in Ukraine has impacted the supply and prices of food, while resources have become increasingly stretched. At the same time, a growing population is fuelling demand for food that’s both better and cheaper.
What triggers could cause the system to break? And are there investment opportunities in our collective push for a more sustainable food system? Mhairi Gooch covers these themes in our latest article.
If you would like to explore how food systems could affect investment outcomes or discuss related investment risks and opportunities, please contact us, or your usual Hymans Robertson consultant.
