Food production is responsible for around one-quarter of total greenhouse gas emissions. If global warming is to be limited to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels - and the catastrophic consequences of a greater increase are to be avoided - the way we produce, process and consume food needs to change.
In FoodNavigator's Climate Smart Food 2022 digital summit, we will ask what this transformation looks like and how it can be achieved. From the action large corporations are taking to combat emissions in their supply chains, through to consumer attitudes to sustainable consumption, and cutting-edge innovation in food and ag tech. The aim is to dig down beyond distant Net Zero ambitions to explore the roadmap to get there.
Across three days of live-streamed content, FoodNavigator’s editorial team will be joined by speakers from a wide variety of stakeholders, including F&B corporates, NGOs and civil society, academics and scientists.
We’ll hear from FMCG giants including Mars, Danone and PepsiCo alongside environmental experts at WWF and Rainforest Alliance.
We’ll be looking for answers to some of the critical questions facing the food and beverage sector as it works to cut its footprint and deliver safe, healthy and secure food for this and future generations. Key topics include:
- Deforestation and land use change
- Methane emissions from meat and dairy
- Nutrition security in the climate crisis
- Upcycling and efficiency
- ‘Net zero’, ‘carbon neutral’ and the carbon markets
- Regenerative and organic production
- Plastic pollution
