Resilient Farm and Food System Finance Webinar


The Clean Portfolio Project, Croatan Institute, and the Organic Agriculture Revitalization Strategy (OARS) hosted a webinar exploring models to finance resilient food systems and regenerative, organic agriculture across asset classes.

This event took place on Tuesday, January 15, 2019, from 12:30-2:00 pm EST / 9:30-11:00 am PST. A recording of the webinar is available for on-demand viewing at your convenience. 

The Clean Portfolio Project is developing total portfolio approaches to fossil-free investing in integrated climate solutions. Through intentional investments in food and farming systems, we can rebuild the soil and help make farms more resilient to changing climates and droughts, while also pulling carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and thus mitigating the worst impacts of climate change.

Learn how investors working in various asset classes, such as fixed income, private debt, and real assets, are making investments in food and farming systems that create positive impacts on communities and the climate. The conversation will begin with a framing discussion on the new mechanisms for financing regenerative agriculture with Delta Institute, followed by a panel discussion moderated by Croatan Institute featuring investors working in distinctive asset classes, including Community Capital Management, Farmland LP, and Iroquois Valley Farmland REIT.
