C. Scott Kitcher, President, and CEO of Sustain SoCal, emphasized the importance of the event, stating, “Recent scientific research from the US EPA found that the agricultural sector accounted for 10% of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States in 2021. Given the sheer importance of lowering emissions and mitigating the lasting impacts of climate damage, it is crucial that we begin to make ever-greater strides towards a truly sustainable agricultural and food system. The sector also pressurizes other natural resources such as soil health and water ecosystems. In addition, the myriad linkages of the agriculture and food sector to the broader biodiversity and nutrition underscore the importance of this sector. We are thrilled to have a tremendous lineup of highly experienced speakers to share their invaluable expertise in this area with our attendees. This is a must-attend event for everyone, especially in Southern California and beyond.”
