In October 2021, Kimberly Griego-Kiel took part in the ESG For Impact! conference in Colorado Springs.
During this two-day conference, Kim attended sessions focused on SRI investments, strategies, and concepts while connecting with like-minded professionals and industry leaders.
One of those leaders was Rex Raimond, the director of The Transformational Investing in Food Systems (TIFS) Initiative.
In the first part of the ESG for Impact! miniseries, Rex joins Kim to explain everything around investing in global food systems. They explore how food growth can impact our health and the environment and outline ways we can get into a new sustainable economy.
Kim and Rex discuss:
- How food systems fit within the ESG arena
- The destructiveness of the agricultural system
- The financial component of growing food system operations
- Consequences of not managing our land properly
- And more!
