What are the technological challenges of agribusiness in terms of sustainability?

The RTRS Global Executive Director, Luiza Bruscato, was invited to participate as a speaker in the sustainability panel at the 3rd Agtech Summit 2024 held January 24 and 25.  Hosted by the Brazilian Associação Catarinense de Tecnologia – ACATE (Catarinense Technology Association), the summit aimed to delve into the challenges faced by Brazilian agribusiness concerning technology and sustainability.

Luiza kicked off the event with a clear introduction about concepts such as sustainability and Environmental, Social and Governance – ESG, and explained the vital role of multistakeholder and global roundtables such as RTRS in the discussion and promotion of sustainable supply chains.

“Sustainability goes beyond avoiding deforestation; it’s a holistic concept that includes a lot more: reducing social risks, making a positive impact in the community, and embracing regenerative agricultural practices”, she stated.

The panel, moderated by Joel Risso, Director of Vertical Agtech, featured notable speakers including Bernardo Pires, Director of Sustainability at Associação Brasileira das Indústrias de Óleos Vegetais – ABIOVE, and Bruno Brazil de Souza, Country Representative in Brazil for Verra. Together with them, Luiza emphasized the pivotal role of certification as a key tool in attaining sustainable objectives in food production.
