The conference is slated for Feb. 20, 2024, in Irvine, California, and is designed to present years of sustainability experience and gather renowned experts in the innovative agriculture space. Event speakers include A. G. Kawamura, a founding member of Orange County Produce LLC.; Jacob Raykhelson, senior manager of environmental sustainability at the Walt Disney Company; Darren Haver, director of UC ANR Research and Extension Center System; Adrian Hightower, PhD, PE, ENV-SP, sustainability and resilience manager at the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California; Andrew Arentowicz, CEO of 50/50 Foods Inc.; and Mike Learakos, CEO of Abound Food Care. According to the announcement, the event will be a can’t-miss gathering for those interested in sustainable food, farming and the future of agriculture, with recognized pioneers and policy experts from Southern California and surrounding regions converging to share their perspectives, insights and vision regarding the direction of sustainability in today’s food and agriculture landscape.
“Recent scientific research from the U.S. EPA found that the agricultural sector accounted for 10% of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States in 2021,” said Sustain SoCal president and CEO C. Scott Kitcher in the press release. “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.”
