As Nuveen mark the 10th anniversary of their Farmland Report, they reflect on the journey of embedding sustainability into their farmland management philosophy.
Nuveen have never seen a time when the forces of change have been stronger or more aligned. Crop protection and seed companies are seeking to find innovative ways to increase efficiency and reduce inputs, while food companies are responding to consumer demands to reduce the impact the food value chain has on the environment and to increase transparency. At the same time, governments and institutional investors are intensifying their scrutiny of sustainability factors across longer time horizons, and consulting firms are creating advanced tools for measuring ESG progress. These converging forces are aligned with Westchester’s efforts to continue to advance Nuveen's sustainability initiatives. The long-term nature of farmland investments and the ability to implement practices on the ground, allows Nuveen to protect and enhance natural capital while also delivering stable investment returns.To the extent that anything on this website constitutes a financial promotion it is exempt from the general prohibition in S21 of FSMA on the basis that the site is only intended for investment professionals as such term is defined in S19 of the Financial Promotions Order.
