How we invest in farmland: An introduction to Nuveen’s global agricultural sustainability approach

How we invest in farmland

Why sustainability matters

The world’s population continues to expand — reaching 6 billion at the dawn of the 21st Century and nearly 10 billion projected by 2050. Exploding population and rising protein consumption are driving the need for more efficient agriculture to meet rising global demand for food, animal feed, clothing fiber, biofuels and other farm products.

We believe that our farmland investments can help to meet global demand for food, while encouraging sustainable practices to be good stewards of the environment over the long term. In partnership with our tenants, local operators and farm managers, we foster sustainability best practices and promote investment in farming innovation to improve efficiency. Moreover, we respect land rights and the communities where we farm.

Sound stewardship is imperative for us – it is fundamental to our long-term investment success and aligned with our corporate values. As we execute our investment strategy, we are committed to pursuing the UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) Farmland Guidelines, which we helped to develop in 2011 with other farmland investors.

These five guidelines — regularly monitored with Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) — are designed to promote:

 

This introduction describes Nuveen’s sustainable farmland investing policies and procedures. It is intended to complement our 2020 Farmland Report , which documents our progress in meeting the PRI Farmland Guidelines.
