Global Roadmap to 2050 for Food and Agriculture

FAIRR convened an investor letter calling on the FAO to produce a Global Roadmap to 1.5˚C, Nature and Nutrition Security Goals. On 9 November at COP27, FAO Deputy Director, Zitouni Ould-Dada, confirmed work is underway to produce a roadmap for the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector to align with 1.5C by 2050 – aiming for publication by COP28.

The EU Taxonomy

In a recent webinar, co-hosted by the FAIRR Initiative and the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC), we heard from experts in sustainable finance, academia and policy for the latest updates on the EU Taxonomy regulation and its implications for investors. The recording is now available to watch here on-demand.

In October 2021, a group of investors and financial advisers, who collectively represent over $3.5 trillion in assets, also sent a letter to the EU Commission highlighting the significance of the agricultural sector in achieving net zero and calling for a robust sustainable finance taxonomy that promotes biodiversity and aligns with the 1.5-degree goal.


The FAIRR Initiative has been delighted to participate in many insightful discussions related to sustainable food systems at the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27), which took place this year in Sharm El-Sheikh between 6 November and 18 November. The FAIRR delegation will be led by Jeremy Coller, Chair, Maria Lettini, Executive Director, and Dr Helena Wright, Policy Director, among other members of the team.
