The agriculture sector is confronting the challenge of feeding a growing and increasingly prosperous population while minimizing environmental, social and climate change impacts. To profile this challenge, the forum will address this topic from the perspective of large US agribusiness corporations, profiling movement toward sustainable large-scale agricultural production. 

Erin Fitzgerald and Dennis Treacy leaders in this emerging field, will address the issues, perceptions, and profile on-the-ground progress being made by this critical industry.  To place these initiatives squarely within the context of corporate sustainability, Andrew Winston will profile the "big pivot" occurring in the world of business, embracing resilient, sustainable and climate friendly modes of operation that reduce risks and costs and yield competitive advantage for the corporations that choose to chart this course. 

Following the presentations, we will convene a panel discussion and field audience questions.
