About the Session

In this session featuring Sustainable Planet, an award-winning agri-tech food production company at the forefront of sustainable agriculture, Susan Payne, COO, will highlight an innovative approach that combines technology and farming practices to address pressing global challenges such as food security and climate change, and regenerative agriculture.

Sustainable Planet focuses on harnessing the power of the water lentil plant, a high-protein crop that thrives in non-arable land and requires significantly less water compared to other protein sources. With its exponential growth rate and superior nutritional value, the water lentil plant offers a sustainable solution to the protein needs of a growing population.

In this session, Susan will delve into the critical issue of providing protein to a projected global population of 10 billion people within the next 30 years, necessitating a 50% increase in food production. As the current reliance on animal-based protein and soybeans faces limitations due to land scarcity, Sustainable Planet's plant-based protein emerges as a viable alternative. The company's unique cultivation methods, leveraging local agricultural operators in Africa and the Middle East, allow for sustainable large-scale production of water lentils year-round, creating job opportunities for smallholder farmers.

Moreover, Sustainable Planet's approach not only addresses the protein shortage but also delivers climate mitigation benefits. The water lentil plant acts as a carbon sink, absorbing nitrates and releasing oxygen, while also generating carbon credits. Their commitment to supporting 13 Sustainable Development Goals further emphasizes their dedication to social and environmental sustainability.

Join this session to learn about Sustainable Planet's innovative solutions and how their plant-based protein production can surpass the affordability of soybeans. Gain insights into their contributions to climate change mitigation, job creation, and progress towards achieving the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.
