Mainstage Session | Investing in Tomorrow: Financing Food Waste Solutions to Meet the Climate Challenge

Investing in food waste reduction is at an inflection point - with several clear tailwinds indicating that deploying capital into the sector has never been more attractive.

Seasoned early stage climate investors will discuss what innovation and sector development they will be looking for in 2023 and beyond, and industry experts will discuss the potential for carbon offsets to play a role in driving capital to food waste solutions.
