The World Economic Forum provides the Global Innovators Community with a platform to engage with public- and private-sector leaders and to contribute new solutions to overcome current crises and build future resiliency.

In addition to participating in the Annual Meeting at Davos, Greenlabs is expanding its agrifood innovation on the world stage. The business has globalized its successfully digitized data-based Korean agriculture platform called "Farm Morning." It has released a Japanese version of Farm Morning named "Farmnabi" and plans to pioneer it on the Asian market, including India and Vietnam, which bears similarities to the Korean agriculture environment. Going forward, Greenlabs's goal is to make Farm Morning a total platform used by farmers worldwide to use each country's agricultural industry data to contribute to a stable food supply.

Greenlabs is also taking an active lead in responding to the worldwide issue of climate change. Last May, it signed business agreements with the APEC Climate Center (APCC) and Korea's Rural Development Administration and is constructing cooperative systems to respond jointly to abnormal climate and contributing to sustainable agricultural development. This is the first time ever that APCC has signed a business agreement with a private company. Furthermore, Greenlabs has begun to supply "low-carbon beef" to reduce carbon emissions from meat, which represent approximately 60% of the food industry's carbon emissions.

Additionally, Greenlabs is a leader in exports of "K-smart agriculture" to improve global agricultural productivity. It has engaged recently in discussions with Nepal to supply outdoor smart farm technology and build distribution value chains. Greenlabs has further plans to increase productivity and quality, starting with crops such as potatoes and strawberries that are suitable for the current climate and soil, and then take the lead in global smart farm innovation.

Verena Kuhn, Head of Global Innovator community at the World Economic Forum, commented, "We are very pleased to have Greenlabs as a Global Innovator. We hope Greenlabs will provide new and innovative ideas in the new frontiers of nutrition initiative."

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
