Event description
Join us for a timely discussion on September 15, 2020 ahead of Climate Week NYC.

About this event

As the world plans to re-emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, EU and US leaders are working to ensure that environmental justice is central to the recovery. With agricultural systems accounting for nearly one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions, the success of climate action policies depends on more environmentally, socially and economically sustainable agriculture and food supply chains.

Please join us for a conversation with transatlantic policy and business leaders to discuss how the EU's recently released Farm to Form Strategy and the bipartisan Growing Climate Solutions Act in the US could accelerate the growth of sustainable agriculture solutions and innovative technologies as part of a climate-resilient transition.
