Ceres Launches New Investor Guide to Engage Food Sector on Sustainability Risks 

Published on Jun 27, 2017

Ceres has released a new peer-reviewed resource guide to help investors better understand and evaluate the environmental and social impacts that drive financial risk in the food sector. The tool comes as sustainability shareholder resolutions with food companies rise to several dozen filed in 2017, according to an analysis by Ceres.

The guide, known as Engage the Chain overviews the environmental and social challenges associated with the production of eight commonly sourced commodities: beef, corn, dairy, fiber-based packaging, palm oil, soybeans, sugarcane and wheat. It also provides specific examples of reputational, market, operational, litigation and regulatory risks that food companies may face as a result of these impacts in their supply chains.

How the oceans can clean themselves by Boyan Slat
Static Preview

Published on Oct 24, 2012

18-year-old Boyan Slat combines environmentalism, entrepreneurism and technology to tackle global issues of sustainability. After diving in Greece, and coming across more plastic bags than fish, he wondered; "why can't we clean this up?"  His 2017 speech announcing a design breakthrough is here.

While still being on secondary school, he then decided to dedicate half a year of research to understand plastic pollution and the problems associated with cleaning it up.
This ultimately led to his passive clean-up concept, which he presented at TEDxDelft 2012.
Working to prove the feasibility of his concept, Boyan Slat currently gives lead to a team of approximately 50 people, and temporarily quit his Aerospace Engineering study to completely focus his efforts on The Ocean Cleanup.

The progress of The Ocean Cleanup can be followed here.  On Facebook and Twitter.
Boyan Slat, born 1994 in Delfit, Netherlands, is an inventor, entrepreneur and aerospace engineering student of Croatian origin. His father is an artist who currently resides in Istria County, Croatia.

Published on Jun 14, 2016

Food production is lagging behind global population growth, due to increasing demand and flat crop yields. One obvious answer to the question of increased agricultural efficiency is new technology. In today’s farm country, drones map fields, software locates underground water and sets plans for planting, and tractors are loaded with electronic gear. Using big data requires big bucks, and investment in digital tools for farming is on the rise.
