A conversation with Dan Fitzgerald, founder and managing partner Regen Ventures on investing in regenerative technology by putting nature first.
Guaranteeing access to sufficient nutrients to the entire global population, which is set to reach 10 billion by 2050, will force a radical rethinking of the current agri-food system. The industrial, linear model of farming has created diversity-free systems that require enormous quantities of pesticides and chemical fertilisers to keep yields high. Cropping and farming practices, with their intensive use of inputs, have led to the exhaustion and erosion of soil and natural systems. The long-term health and resilience of our ecosystem are in danger. However, this trend can and must be reversed.
Troy Carter and Patrick Leung on preventing speculative boom around the $5T carbon potential of degraded land
Troy Carter and Patrick Leung of Earthshot Labs discuss how compelling visualisations through their simulator impact our regenerative transition on a global scale.
A conversation with Mellany Klompe, the Co-founder of Soil Heroes and the Director of the Soil Heroes Foundation about how measuring nutrient density is key towards having farmers as well as consumers on board with regenerative transition.
Pierre Rousseau, the Senior Advisor of BNP Paribas’ Sustainable Business, joins us to talk about the role of banks in regenerative transition. He also talks about how monetising externalities can revolutionise the way you do business.
Nathalie Whitaker and Mike Taitoko, regenerating New Zealand’s dairy industry focussing on water not carbon
A conversation with Nathalie Whitaker and Mike Taitoko, co-founders of Toha, which is building a one-of-a-kind global marketplace with climate and environment impact at its heart.
Jim Mann, using biochar and enhanced weathering to super charge the carbon potential of ecosystem regeneration
What is the role of profit in scaling regeneration? How do we sell credits for biochar? What is enhanced weathering and why does it matter? How can we deploy billions in restoring ecosystems, increasing biodiversity, and storing a lot of carbon permanently? Jim Mann, founder of The Future Forest Company, joins us to talk about the wonders of enhanced weathering co-deployed with biochar and why this experiment deserves billions of dollars of investment.
Benjamin Ware on how Nestlé, doing $93 billion a year in sales, is getting serious about regeneration
This conversation with Benjamin Ware, manager of Responsible Sourcing for Nestlé, explores the role of large corporations in regenerative agriculture. As this is a transition, it is a slow process so don’t expect Nestlé to buy 100% regenerative products in 10 years and there might be a role for some chemical inputs in the transition.
