During this presentation, we will use a transdisciplinary approach to explore the scale and nature of the global and systemic sustainability challenge faced by humanity, its underlying causes and its solution.
Actually, agriculture is both a victim of and a culprit responsible for climate change. Surely global warming is already having a profound impact on the sustainability of agricultural production systems as it is responsible for a fall in yields of up to 8 percent in various regions.
However, agricultural and land use/land change activities, including tilling, deforestation, and the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and animal wastes contribute approximately 23 percent of total greenhouse gas emissions. If we do not change, this rate is bound to further increase due to an increase in the demand for food from a growing global population, the stronger demand for dairy and meat products, and the intensification of agricultural practices.
To decarbonize agriculture it is important that we enable producers to change the way we produce, transport, and consume food. It is vital that we do not leave the weight of reducing the carbon footprint on the weakest link of the chain, the farmer.
A robust, vibrant carbon market that incentivizes the adoption of these techniques at the grassroots level by providing an alternative revenue stream in the form of carbon emission reduction monetization will surely enable the decarbonization of agriculture.

While the EU Taxonomy is being deployed accross companies, some say it's a only an additional reporting constraint that will not have much impact. Although the regulation isn't yet finalized, at Greenscope we foresee a different scenario where companies can transform the constraint into an opportunity.
Grégoire, CEO of Greenscope will walk you through the EU Taxonomy and how it can support companies on the long term.
"Climate Change and the Importance of Waste Management"
Climate change is a trans-boundary threat that can be tackled through mitigation and adaptation. Waste management is critical to reduce the problem of pollution by accumulation of solid wastes, which is eventually one of the techniques to tackle climate change. In the session, we will talk about this and elaborate more about the importance of recycling and waste management.
With all the focus on corporate actions during this Decisive Decade (2021-2030), we will continue to see multiple Sustainability initiatives being implemented. At the same time, it is important to focus on building Sustainability culture within the corporate to ensure that the actions taken during the decisive decade have the right impact today and last long into the future.
For this to happen, it is important that every employee within the organization plays a part in this imperative transition.

Climate change has originated new material risks (physical and transition risks) and has increased reputational risks for businesses. Moreover, access to finance is becoming increasingly linked to companies’ climate-related risks. Companies embracing climate risk assessment and management early on have bigger chances of prospering in the next decades. Join me to engage on Risks & Opportunities of Climate Change on Businesses
Shareholder power to shift corporate policies and practices on climate change, racial justice, and other ESG issues
Every organisation(especially those with high environmental impact) needs effective ways and strategies in it's managerial decisions in other to achieve a more friendly environment.
Governments around the world are failing to stick to their pledges to curb climate change, and with the current energy crisis we are facing, huge investments are pouring into fossil fuels whilst these companies are raking in huge profits. Protests are essential to bringing about change within a democracy, but is their effectiveness reducing? And are governments listening to protesters?
We still urgently need to bring about change to avoid the worst impact on the climate crisis and make the movement more inclusive for everyone to feel part of and empower them to do something. Businesses can play a huge role in bringing about social change, so this presentation will explore different ways employers can implement changes to empower their employees and also put pressure on governments to influence policy change.
The Realistic Gap between the Paris Agreement and the Actual Implementation Mechanisms (Finance)
Mr. Macy has worked in international development for over four decades, primarily in the water and sanitation sector. He has overseen projects from inexpensive boreholes to billion-dollar water supply projects and worked with NGOs, consulting firms, aid agencies, development banks, regulators, and other stakeholders in the sector. He's seen his fair share of failed projects and projects that lose their efficacy after only a few years. He'll be sharing about what it takes for projects and investments to last in the developing world.
In this talk I will be discussing Climate Change and its effect on the maritime space on the policy level.
Cultural exchange & environmental behavior
We use board sabermetrics to measure how boards perform on everything from fundamental financials to carbon and worker productivity. It's not what you invest in, it's who.
Climate-smart Agriculture (CSA) is now a widely accepted suite of tools and methodology for mitigating the environmental damage traditional agricutlural practices have caused, adapting to new environmental conditions and using cost effective innovations, and improving smallholder profitability and food security. There are several innovations, which have been developed as tools for CSA, which we term "disruptive" because they immediately present benefits that prior tools serving the same purpose did not provide. This presentation focuses on "hyper-disruptive" tools, which is a small sub set of innovations that have special characteristics, enabling added value and utility of other complementary tools, address all socio-ecologic systems. The example of the hyper-disruption will be an explication of the utlity of Desert Control Liquid Natural Clay
Capital allocation lies at the intersection of sustainable development and pollution. For many societies, mitigating pollution and managing waste forces governments to grapple with the challenge of funding programs in poor resource environments, whether it be due to tax collection inefficiencies, corruption, the regulatory environment, or policy choices. This challenge is particularly pronounced in the Global South as it relates to waste management. And it is here that the private sector and investors have a role to play in creating innovative solutions to an urgent problem affecting societies. This roundtable conversation proposes to explore how sustainable finance must/should be leveraged to aid in the transformation of how we manage waste with a focus on the so-called Global South. The problem of waste management is at once local and global in nature and as such the solution should be so too.
