As President & CEO of World Business Council for Sustainable Development, Peter Bakker engages on a daily basis with CEOs of over 200 leading companies. He communicates a clear message: “the need to transform global food systems is more urgent than ever before, it is now or never. If you feel tomorrow will be the same as today, you are missing the sense of urgency for a radical change”.

In his opening key-note, Peter will share his views on what is needed, supported by tangible actions. Don’t expect a “doom and gloom” approach on climate emergency, the loss of nature and growing inequality but a story of opportunities for sustainable food production around the globe providing healthy diets. Business, well-established corporates and disruptive early-stage startups, unprecedented leadership and a shift in mindset are a pre-requisite for 9+ billion people to live well.
