Co-Managing Director of Levity CropScience, David Marks, has been invited to be a judge in the Zero Hunger category at the inaugural Global SDG Awards.
The Global Sustainable Development Goal Awards, which will take place later in 2018, are an international sustainability initiative, designed to increase private sector engagement with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) framework, through competition. In total, there are 17 SDGs, including Good Health and Well-being, Climate Action, and Zero Hunger.
Levity CropScience, based in Bilsborrow, Lancashire, takes an innovative approach to agronomy and their experts are recognisedas leaders in increasing yields and crop problem solving. Offering tailored troubleshooting agronomy advice for growers, their specialist scientists understand the problems of growers and create market leading fertiliser products to solve their issues.
At the awards, Levity CropScience will join representatives of global brands such as Google, Cisco and HSBC on the judging panel, to evaluate the nominated private sector organisations and choose which organisation has best implemented SDG programmes into their activities.
Judges for the Zero Hunger category will specifically evaluate how private organisations have tackled hunger and malnutrition around the world.
David commented: “I’m proud to have been chosen, alongside some of the world’s biggest companies, to judge the Zero Hunger category. As a judge, I will assess the positive impact, potential for scalability and impact of SDG programmes.
“Eliminating global hunger is arguably the most important challenge the world faces and the UN’s global goal to end hunger is one close to the hearts of everyone at Levity.”
