Financing the transition to climate-smart agriculture
Barry Callebaut’s Chief Innovation, Sustainability & Quality Officer Pablo Perversi took the stage May 23, 2018 at the World Bank Innovate for Climate Summit in Frankfurt (Germany). The topic at hand: financing sustainability. The focus of the summit was financing the transition towards a climate-smart agriculture that does not cause deforestation - a critical issue for Barry Callebaut.
We need to cast the net wide in order to tackle climate change in a systemic way. We cannot just focus on the most visible causes, i.e deforestation, without tackling the underlying causes and financial solutions that are required.
