PRI breakfast event on water risks in agricultural supply chains - New York

PRI breakfast event on water risks in agricultural supply chains - New York

The PRI is releasing a new investor engagement guide on water risks in agricultural supply chains, developed in partnership with WWF. 

Increasing competition and demand for water is having an impact on agriculture, which is the largest user of water. Consequently, companies with direct operations and supply chains that are dependent on agriculture are exposed to water risks. Investors are engaging with companies to appropriately mitigate these risks and demonstrate good water stewardship practices.

Join us for a practical discussion on water risks in the agricultural supply chain taking place on March 5 in New York. Delegates will have the opportunity to hear from other investors on their own experiences of engaging on water risk as well as find out more about the PRI-coordinated collaborative engagement and how to get involved in this topic. 

Speakers:

  • Rob Buesing, Analyst, ClearBridge
  • Andre Fourie, Global Director: Water, AB Inbev 
  • Marcela Pinilla, Director, CBIS
