Considering ESG goals for a higher return on investments in ag (9.13.2017)

TOKYO, 13 September 2017 – Bringing opportunities to the forefront for agriculture-themed investments around the world and advising on the latest nuances in the sector are what attract attendees to Global AgInvesting Asia. Companies like Japan Post Bank, Nippon Life Insurance Company, The Norinchukin Bank, and Mitsui & Company will attend the event here, 10-11 October at the Hilton Tokyo Shinjuku.

Tops on the list at this seventh annual event, which is the world’s most attended event for connecting innovators and investors in the ag sector, is a panel discussion on responsible agriculture investment strategies to meet environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals. By considering ESG goals in investment analysis, a business can invest in a manner consistent with its values. This type of responsible investing is taking hold in the industry, for its ability to provide downside protection while potentially improving the upside.

Elaborating on this topic will be panel speaker Ben King, CEO of Pacific Gold Agriculture LLC. “Responsible and sustainable practices applied across the value chain have the power to not only positively influence ESG matters, but also positively impact profitability and improve risk management,” he said. “A focus on sustainability involves long-term strategies for the efficient use of natural resources, which can also translate to managing land stewardship in a manner that can be prosperous for the land as well as the bottom line.”

Attendees – asset managers, institutional investors, agribusiness executives and more – to Global AgInvesting Asia will leave with a greater understanding of the agriculture investing landscape, from the fundamentals to the opportunities in regions such as Oceania, South America and North America. Key topics include:

• Asian Trading Firms – the M&A Landscape
• Agriculture Investment Opportunities in China
• Finding Opportunity in Supply Chain Traceability
• Current Trends in Global AgTech Investment
• A Comparative Analysis of the Real Assets Bucket – Examining Farmland’s Place Alongside Infrastructure, Real Estate and Timber (see related GAI Gazette article on this topic)

Discounted passes are available for Japanese agribusinesses, early-stage agtech firms and producers. Email info@globalaginvesting.com for details.
