The Food and Land Use Coalition (FOLU) Report ‘Growing Better: Ten Critical Transitions to Transform Food and Land Use’ sets out the need for action now in order to turn the food and land use system around over the next decade. WBCSD is a co-founder of the FOLU Coalition.
The report is focused on ten critical transitions based on advanced scenario modeling that will deliver health, environmental and inclusion benefits.
The analysis demonstrates that it is possible to bring climate change under control, protect nature, ensure more healthy diets for all, improve food security, strengthen rural economies and unlock USD 4.5 trillion in new business opportunities each year by 2030. This is at the same time as saving costs of USD 5.7 trillion a year in damage to people and the planet by 2030, more than 15 times the investment cost of up to USD 350 billion a year.
The report recognizes the vital role of business to support this ambitious agenda, highlighting case studies from WBCSD members, of business innovations and interventions that are already signaling the change we want to see.
