IN THIS COURSE YOU WILL LEARN:
- How climate change and other global ecological crises are creating new categories and degrees of risk for industries and investors - and how building regenerative supply relationships can mitigate that risk.
- How the science and principles of regenerative agriculture gets applied on the ground to real production systems and ingredients.
- How to evaluate the differences between organic, “sustainable”, and regenerative agriculture systems, and the diverse values and drawbacks of labeling and certifications.
- How to go beyond merely “sourcing” and build resilient, mutually beneficial relationships with producers and communities.
- How to design investments in regenerative agriculture production to offset company externalities directly within your supply chain.
- How to evaluate your company’s potential for engagement with regenerative agriculture, and develop a customized plan for getting more deeply involved in the field.
