On 2nd March, the Mission Critical Water Virtual Summit will bring together business leaders from a wide array of industries to discuss the future of water sustainability. We may have reached peak water. As population grows, and fresh water supplies remain static or actually decline, our world is destined to become a drier, thirstier place. Syngenta's CEO Mike Mack is to participate in the discussion delivering a keynote address.
Syngenta is developing technologies to reduce agriculture's water footprint, while working with partners to create new efficiencies.
Now Syngenta is stepping forward as the lead sponsor of the Mission Critical Water Virtual Summit, a free, online conference that can help organizations access actionable strategies, solutions, as well as best and next practices to help use water as efficiently as possible.
Specific topics to be covered include: the critical importance of agricultural and other technologies in meeting the water challenge and sustainably accommodating a growing world population; how to measure an organization's water footprint, assess regulatory and reputational risks, align water data with company's energy and climate risk assessments, and integrate water issues into strategic business planning.
In addition to Mike Mack, chief executive officer, other senior Syngenta leaders at the conference include John Atkin, chief operating officer; Davor Pisk, chief operating officer; Robert Berendes, global head of Business Development; Peleg Chevion, head of business development, Water and Vern Hawkins, president, Syngenta Crop Protection.
