CFS Principles for Responsible Investment in Agriculture and Food Systems - Oct 2014


Vishaal Shah has been a strong supporter of sustainable investing and is involved in a number of multilateral initiatives backed by some of the largest NGOs, thinktanks and government bodies. He was a significant contributor as part of a working group led by the International Sustainable Unit to the CFS Principles for Responsible Investment in Agriculture and Food Systems, which were approved by the 41st Session of CFS on 15 October 2014.

 

The Principles address all types of investment in agriculture and food systems - public, private, large, small - and in the production and processing spheres. They provide a framework that all stakeholders can use when developing national policies, programmes, regulatory frameworks, corporate social responsibility programmes, individual agreements and contracts.

 

They are voluntary and non-binding, but represent the first time that governments, the private sector, civil society organizations, UN agencies, development banks, foundations, research institutions and academia have agreed on what constitutes responsible investment in agriculture and food systems that contribute to food security and nutrition.
