In the first of Lombard Odier Investment Managers planetary boundaries webinar series Michael Urban, Chief Sustainability Strategist, talks to Conor Walsh, Portfolio Manager, about the recently launched New Food Systems strategy. The webinar provides a deeper insight into the USD $1.5 trillion investment opportunity that is presented by the evolution of our existing food systems. The speakers discuss the importance of the Agriculture, Forestry and other Land Use (AFOLU) as a primary driver of planetary boundaries transgressions, and what we see as the necessary transformations within our food systems to sustain a growing global population whilst helping to restore planetary boundaries.
