By 2050, it’s estimated that there will be 9.7 billion people living on the planet. Against a baseline of 2010, demand for food is projected to increase by 50%. In order to accommodate our world population with healthy, nutritious food, we need to produce more food in the next 40 years than we have in the past 8,000 years combined.
Feeding a rapidly growing global population is a complex and urgent task that requires a multifaceted approach. As the world's population continues to increase, so does the demand for food, but the world can't currently produce enough to meet these demands. To address this issue, we need to increase food production while also promoting sustainable agricultural practices that minimize waste and environmental impact.
We published a report titled “Sustainability and the business of growing” which is report outlining trends for sustainable horticulture in the United States and Canada. In this report, we speak with industry experts, growers, climate consultants, and investors who are doing their part to pave the way towards a more sustainable future for the next generation.
By downloading “Sustainability and the business of growing”, you will learn:
- The huge challenge that humanity faces to meet demand for global food production.
- What's been driving seven-figure investments in Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA).
- The surprising metric that sustainable growers are using as a benchmark to site their new-builds.
- How the 2022 Inflation Reduction Act is expected to earmark its US$ 369 billion of funding for energy security and climate change initiatives.
- Svensson's team of experts, including Ludvig Svensson's North American operations President, Matt Bonavita, are observing trends and changes that are taking place under glass (and plastic).
At Svensson, our commitment is to help growers worldwide create a better climate for sustainable greenhouse cultivation and a reduced impact on our planet’s climate system. In use, our products contribute to increased yields, product quality and improved climate-positive effects. We strongly believe that working closely together is the key to creating sustainable solutions, businesses, and communities with a balance of economic growth, positive social impact, and environmental protection.
