Reimagining Food Systems to Meet the Climate Challenge

The food we cultivate and consume has a huge effect on climate change, with agricultural production contributing 20 to 30% of global greenhouse gas emissions. If we are to achieve the international goal of net zero emissions by 2050, we must implement radical but attainable solutions, fast. How can we significantly reduce emissions across key sectors within the food system, while maintaining nutritional balance and food security. How can communities be empowered to feed themselves? How can action on energy and transport, or other cross-cutting challenges, take us further, faster?

Climate Risk and Urban Property Values

Boston is the fourth most at-risk city in the country from climate change impacts, including sea level rise, coastal flooding, extreme storms and extreme heat. Like many other coastal cities, Boston is moving forward with aggressive strategies to build long-term resilience to these climate risks. Implementing resilience solutions will cost money – both in the form of public infrastructure investments and private property modifications. Can property values serve as a useful measure in the effort to value the returns on investing in climate infrastructure?

CLIMATE RISK RESILIENCE POST-2020

The COVID-19 pandemic is a stark reminder of the urgent need for decisive and coordinated global action to minimize the impacts of a crisis. The climate emergency remains the defining threat of our time, but current action plans fall well short of meeting the 1.5/2°C degree pathway which governments and society are demanding.

The financial sector has a fundamental role to play in averting a climate crisis and setting the global economy on track for a cleaner, sustainable future.
