What caught our eye - three key stories (week 21-2024)

Greener agriculture just got more important, do we really understand how to measure responsible sourcing in EV and battery supply chains, and do we need to rethink surface flood protection in our cities,

Three stories that grabbed us last week, and why anyone interested in sustainable investing really needs to read them.

Is the need for greener agriculture even more urgent than we thought: what if the end to end food production process generated more GHG emissions than generating electricity and heat? The World Bank thinks it does.

Do we really understand how to measure responsible sourcing in EV and battery supply chains? Regulation, policies and audit's on their own, are unlikely to be enough. Maybe the answer is simple, investors and NGO's working together to build engagement?

Do we need to rethink surface flood protection in our cities, and if so who pays? Sponge cities could be part of the answer. Water utilities and local government don't have the money, so maybe we can get insurance companies to pay?

Is the need for greener agriculture even more urgent than we first thought?

Does investment in green agriculture need greater attention? It seems pretty obvious to most people that we should be focusing our investments and actions on the biggest climate related challenges. If we are talking about GHG emissions, this would be electricity & heat, transport, and then manufacturing and construction. Or is it?
