Sustainable finance for innovative UK food and farming systems.
UK farming needs to transform urgently towards approaches that enhance environmental services, restore natural capital, contribute to a low carbon transition, and produce healthy food whilst supporting rural livelihoods. In this context, we ask: is our existing financial system sufficient to support the sector at the required scale and pace?
We are exploring and examining the case for a new financial institution – an Agroecology Development Bank – to accelerate a socially just and low carbon transition by providing sustainable finance for innovative UK food and farming systems. This builds upon one of the recommendations in Our Future in the Land report and forms part of our wider farming transition work.
