Partner News: The 2035 Oceania Summit in Auckland 2022 aims to showcase local solutions for global climate impact

New Zealand is embracing its role as a world leader in agri-food-tech with the launch of a new event, the 2035 Oceania Summit in Auckland.

The regional follow-up summit will draw on the experience of New Zealand-based global agri-food-tech consultancy Wharf42, which will co-host the AgriFoodTech Climate Summit at COP26 in Glasgow in November.

Wharf42 founder and Summit organiser Peter Wren-Hilton says: “New Zealand is seen as a key global agri-food-tech hub. One of the reasons we’ve been contracted to help other nations in this area is because the New Zealand model is seen as being the gold standard.”

In addition, the government in New Zealand is very committed to effecting resolution in climate change. The combination of these factors makes New Zealand the perfect destination for an event of this sort.

The event has the support of the Australian AgriTech Association, alongside AgriTech New Zealand, Tourism New Zealand’s Business Events team, and Auckland Unlimited. Wren-Hilton is currently securing the involvement of other key players in the region’s agrifood ecosystem.

He adds: “The objective is to provide farmers and growers with the tools they need to clean up the environment, address climate issues and
reach net zero emissions targets.

“By bringing together the region’s scientific and research community, agritech companies, farmers and growers, investors and policymakers, the 2035 Oceania Summit has been designed to showcase local solutions for global climate impact.”

Tourism New Zealand General Manager Domestic & Business Events, Bjoern Spreitzer says: “Hosting this event not only positions New Zealand as a global leader in agritech and agrifood expertise; it opens opportunities for further research and investment that will benefit our local farmers, local economy, and local environment in the longer term.”
