“This study quantifies the U.S. landscape of investment funds that explicitly make sustainable food and agriculture or regenerative agriculture part of their investment strategy or criteria across investment asset classes – not only in farmland but also in cash and cash equivalents, fixed income, public equities, and private equity and venture capital. We have also identified a wide range of financial mechanisms, instruments, and approaches commonly used in more traditional conservation or agricultural finance transactions that could potentially be mobilized more explicitly to support regenerative agriculture outcomes in the future.
This report therefore provides a roadmap to guide the development of new investment opportunities in regenerative agriculture. Philanthropy and government funding have critical, catalytic roles to play in creating an environment for more private capital to be mobilized in support of regenerative agriculture that truly delivers on its environmental and social impact potential.”
