Vertical Future Founder & CEO Jamie Burrows and Chief Commercial Officer Mark Pickering represented the company’s mission and efforts, including sitting on or leading 6 panels across the Agri-Food Systems Summit and in the COP Blue Zone.
Thank you to all organisers and fellow panellists and a special shout out to the entire team at the World Green Economy Organization (WGEO), which we are a strategic member of – we look forward to carrying on working together to achieve our aligned sustainability goals!
Some key takeaways from COP28 UAE include:
– Mobilisation of support for food and agriculture, including $3.1 billion for a sustainable food system
– Endorsements rose to 152 countries, for the COP28 Declaration on Sustainable Agriculture, Resilient Food Systems, and Climate Action
– Food and Agriculture was one of 11 Declarations with broad country support
Now the work continues, and there is still a significant amount to be done!
