Agriculture has increasingly become one of the leading topics in sustainable infrastructure development and impact investing. We face increasing challenges in global agriculture and food systems: for example, food waste, infrastructure inefficiencies, nutrition related diseases, the risks of cybersecurity, the effects of climate change on agriculture, and the growing need for impact capital both private and public.
The sudden onset of pressure for sustainable solutions in agriculture prompted Dr. Schindler to create a new initiative at his firm, which we have named Transformation World Agriculture, in order to address the biggest issues facing global agriculture today.
Transformation World Agriculture (TWA) is a new sustainable impact investment syndicate of large global capital investors, guided by multiple national governments and inspired by the vision of the World Economic Forum and the Rockefeller Foundation, for the progress of global agriculture and food systems management.
Transformation World Agriculture therefore is dedicated to bringing together like-minded global investors and advisors from Canada, Denmark, The Netherlands, Sweden, the Middle East, the United Kingdom, Switzerland and the USA to form an investment syndicate with a minimum of $2 billion dollars of dedicated investment capital.
Our plan is that Transformation will play a developer and co-partner role alongside the syndicate investors in managing the capital and providing strategic advisory services as well as investing in project development and management. Our plan is to be an integral part of the total solution, because capital is essential and, to date, is deficient in the context of the challenge’s magnitude.
