Goals & Objectives

Our aspiration is to meaningfully impact business and sustainability through education, investment and innovation surrounding climate, materials science and energy, and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues.

Our starting point is agriculture and subsequently all the “touch points” along the supply chain that can be addressed in a transformative way to deliver real, long term decarbonisation results. This includes renewable energy, materials, processing technologies, transport and logistics, client/consumer outcomes etc.

COVID-19 has delivered an unprecedented level of innovation within timeframes not previously thought possible. This is inspirational for businesses seeking innovative solutions for planning transitions to net zero and has meant that ambitious 2030 and 2040 targets are now being established as interim objectives, ahead of the Paris Agreement confirmed 2050 net zero goal.

A growing trend also is the development of more proximity based solutions, taking into account the benefits of shortening supply chains and tailoring programmes that will have an immediate regional effect. These results can then be extrapolated into global scenarios but with the knowledge that they can also be applied at a local level to positively impact environmental and social issues.
