pdf

Agrifood corporations are driving industrialization along the entire global value chain, from farm to plate. The Agrifood Atlas serves facts and shows why and how the road to a socio-ecologically oriented agricultural and nutritional industry must be taken.

Intro

The financial crisis, climate change, scarce resources and social injustice all point to the same conclusion that societies need to reevaluate how to grow in a more sustainable manner. Efficient, low-carbon technologies and intelligent material cycles can spur important shifts in our energy production, transportation and urban development that will secure the prosperity of the global population while conserving our natural resources. We provide a strategic vision on how societies can challenge conservative theories on economic growth and instead embark on a path of smart green growth.
