Resilient Supply Chains

Community-based agroforestry and ecosystem reforestation projects

Investing in ecosystem services is investing in resilient supply chains.

- Why do ecosystem services matter to the investment world?
- How can corporations invest for resiliency in their supply chain?
- What are carbon offsetting and insetting projects?

Andrew Nobrega, Director North America and United Kingdom for PUR Projet, will discuss why ecosystem services matter. He will share his personal career journey to how he arrived at the intersection of environment conservation and finance structures with carbon offsetting and insetting projects. From his experience with PUR Projet, Andrew will share how companies can build resiliency in their supply chains by investing in community-based agroforestry and ecosystem reforestation projects.
