The meaning of positive nutrition

The meaning of positive nutrition

In this report, we explore the meaning of positive nutrition, how achievable global nutritional goals are and, ultimately, how we invest in nutrition that is positive for people and planet.


Biodiversity and climate change are interlinked, with the natural world being both a source of carbon emissions (current farming methods* are responsible for 25% of emissions) and a carbon sink, with forests and oceans absorbing 40% of these emissions. Additionally, the food production system is responsible, both directly and indirectly, for the overwhelming majority of biodiversity loss.

In this context, it is easy to understand the importance of nutrition for UBP’s Biodiversity Restoration strategy, which seeks to generate positive returns whilst enhancing the protection and restoration of the natural world, and to develop tools which the corporate sector can use to address these issues.

In this White Paper, we explore the meaning of positive nutrition, how achievable global nutritional goals are and, ultimately, how we invest in nutrition that is positive for people and the planet.

The White Paper’s key points

  • An estimated 50% more food will be required by 2050.
  • For the combination of positive impact and alpha generation, it is not enough simply to invest in nutrition: it needs to be climate-conscious nutrition.
  • The stars are aligning for alternative protein; namely regulatory support, an increase in consumer interest and a strong innovation pipeline.
  • In the agriculture space, precision agriculture is the most accessible and can arguably be part of the transition to regenerative agriculture.
  • These investment themes have a strong pipeline and should be significantly larger in five years.
