Agrisector added to the portfolio – Jurgen Rigterink

We have to provide food for the growing population, but also realize that we have to produce within the boundaries of our planet.

We must rethink the way we produce and consume our food and make it more sustainable.  

Although the agricultural sector has a major environmental impact, the increased productivity  provides food for the growing population and jobs for many people in developing countries. 

Such factors explain our decision to add Agribusiness, food and water to our focus sectors in 2011. We aim at increasing productivity, reducing CO2 emissions and making more efficient use of water
