Environmental Defense Fund and Farmers Business Network recently announced a new farm operating loan that includes a lower interest rate incentive for farmers who achieve climate and water quality benchmarks. In this webinar, we’ll discuss:
• The environmental standards and robust science underpinning the loan.
• How farmers will experience this new loan.
• How FBN and EDF hope to learn from the pilot and expand this opportunity with more investors and farmers.
Please join Maggie Monast, senior director of climate-smart agriculture at EDF, Shelby Shelton, manager of climate-smart agriculture at EDF, and Steele Lorenz, head of sustainable business for FBN, for a discussion of their collaboration on this new financial innovation.
