According to Unilever, agriculture, land use and deforestation are the second largest source of global greenhouse gas emissions. “Regenerative agriculture practices can reverse this trend and make a significant contribution to addressing climate change and environmental issues. Healthy soils can sequester carbon, support biodiversity, conserve water and improve the resilience of agricultural yields, providing healthy food and a sustainable source of income for millions of people.”

It is with this in mind that the investment fund was created. This project has three major objectives:
• To protect the health of the soil
• To contribute to the future supply of regenerative ingredients
• To help unlock technological solutions to accelerate the shift to sustainable agriculture

“We believe that the necessary transition will only be made possible by a new, more systemic form of collaboration between stakeholders in the value chain, including farmers, producers, manufacturers, retailers, technology providers and financial investors, which this fund will seek to achieve,” Unilever said.
