Co-managing director of Levity CropScience, David Marks, has been invited to be a judge in the Zero Hunger category at the first Global SDG Awards.

The 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 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, offers tailored troubleshooting agronomy advice for growers and creates market leading fertiliser products to solve their issues.

The firm 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 has best implemented SDG programmes into their activities.

David said: “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.”
