Capital in Action: The Role of Catalytic Funding in Food Waste
ReFED’s analysis shows that $3B in catalytic capital is required each year to meet the goal of cutting food waste in half by 2030. What is catalytic capital, and why is it so important? This session will focus on the critical and creative role that catalytic capital plays in advancing food waste solutions, with commentary from a panel of funders on how they have deployed catalytic capital – and how it can be leveraged with other capital types to develop and scale food waste solutions.
