What is the Zero Hunger Private Sector Pledge?

The Zero Hunger Private Sector Pledge (the Pledge) is an opportunity for companies and investment funds to align their investments with new evidence and commitments by donors, governments, and global institutions to achieve zero hunger by 2030.

The Pledge calls on all companies to join the global movement to end hunger, inviting them to invest, innovate and work with donors and development agencies to change the way food is produced, distributed, and consumed.

Ceres2030: Sustainable solutions to end hunger

Ceres2030’s research shows that, by doubling their investments between now and 2030, donors could help end hunger, double smallholder farmer incomes, and protect the climate.

What we are seeing with the Pledge is the private sector stepping up to be a bigger part of the solution. This is a game-changing approach to solving one of the most pressing yet oldest challenges humanity faces.

The difference between pledging and donating

The big difference between a donation and a pledge is the timing. A donation describes the immediate exchange of money or goods from a donor. A pledge is the promised exchange of money or goods from a donor.
