This event, which is an international forum organised by a private actor, has the following objectives :
- Connect people committed to soil regeneration
- Share concrete actions for sustainable and regenerative viticulture/agriculture
- Strengthen the link between Science, Innovation, and realities of the field
- Gather Science-based KPIs and methodologies to champion soil health
In his keynote address, the Sovereign expressed his "delight at seeing large companies are addressing the issue of biodiversity and more specifically, soil health. To encourage positive innovation, it is imperative to involve stakeholders whose activities impact the soils.
Soils, as a complex ecosystem, are one of the earth’s most precious natural resources. Regenerating soils is key to mitigating and adapting to climate change and fighting the loss of biodiversity. Above all, it ensures sustainability and resilience for the entire Wine and Spirits industry. Which is why the preservation of living soils is a fundamental commitment of Moët Hennessy in its sustainability approach.
The Forum brought together researchers, experts, public institutions, journalists, trade associations and companies from the Food & Beverage industry for two days of conferences, round tables, masterclasses, and workshops.
