Indeed, feeding 7.5 billion humans is intimately linked to our relationship with biodiversity. According to the asset manager, this is one of the causes of climate change and is two of the three main sources of greenhouse gas emissions.

In particular, they are increasingly aware of the environmental, social and health impact of the food they consume.
