Cooperation Across Complex AG Supply Chains Scales Impact

Anastasia Volkova Regrow

The global agriculture value chain consists of a complex web of stakeholders. Food is grown by a farmer with the help of input providers, sold to an aggregator, transported by a trader, refined by a process, and then ultimately incorporated into the food products we eat. However, crucial to our economy and health, agriculture contributes up to 31% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Decarbonizing its supply chain and building resiliency requires stakeholder collaboration across the board.
With new cross-industry partnerships supported by the Value Change Initiative and the alliances announced at COP28, Dr. Anastasia Volkova, CEO and co-founder at Regrow, will make the business case for how companies – even competitors – can pool resources to scale impact – from small farmers to non-profits, and even global CPG companies. Through real-world insights, Dr. Volkova will demonstrate how alliances across the value chain to co-develop plans to scale impact for emissions reduction can drive innovation to reach net zero goals by 2030 and expand progress into 2050 and beyond.
