... Welcome to Nuveen's 9th annual Farmland report, which chronicles their progress in achieving a range of sustainability goals across their farmland portfolio, comprising 2.2 million acres in seven countries.

For the first time, this report was written by Westchester’s Environmental, Social and Governance ( ESG ) committee, which was formed in 2019 with members from across the organisation. The committee has already risen to its expansive responsibility: to lead ESG innovation and implementation across the farmland portfolio.

Agriculture employs two billion people worldwide and provides the means to feed a growing global population that will demand as much as 50% more food by 2050 compared with 2010.

Westchester is committed to helping the world meet these challenges through strong leadership, innovation and accountability. Nuveen continue to evolve their approach to ESG and to provide tools for setting and achieving goals.

This report also provides country-level maps with granular data including, for the first time, carbon footprint. These maps will make it easier to visualise the 2019 achievements and challenges. The interactive mapping tool offers some of this data through a bird’s-eye view of the locations and crop types for each of our properties. Throughout the report, you will find numerous examples of Nuveen's sustainability initiatives.
