Theme: Adapting Consumption to Planetary Boundaries

How do we feed the world within the limits of our planetary boundaries? This is the daunting challenge the food & agriculture industry is facing: reducing greenhouse gas emissions and food waste, limiting freshwater consumption and soil depletion to restore biodiversity, our ecosystems and livelihood. Supplying a sufficient and healthy diet for 10 billion people whilst keeping our biosphere intact requires radically different ways of producing and consuming food. To speed up impactful transition, we need partnerships and capital that champion breakthrough innovations and facilitate dietary changes. It’s only through a collective effort that we can achieve a sustainable food system.
