UN Food Systems Summit Independent Dialogue
convened by Quantis + Regenerative Society Foundation
With the global food system responsible for an estimated 28% (and potentially up to 35%) of global greenhouse gas emissions, the food and beverage sector has a critical role to play in capping global temperature rise to 1.5˚C by 2030.
But what does this number mean for business? How does it break down across the value chain, from fork to farm? And where do major hotspots lie, in terms of not only emissions, but also water consumption, biodiversity loss and land-use change?
During this insightful session, Quantis and Regenerative Society Foundation will dig into the landscape of sustainability priorities for the food and beverage industry, working backward from the plate to the field. We’ll explore the practices with the greatest potential impact at key stages of the food value chain and discuss how to create a food system that optimizes both human and environmental health. And to help businesses get to work, we’ll share how to shape effective sustainability strategies, set meaningful goals, contribute to the UN Food System Summit Action Tracks 1-2-3, track progress and communicate about efforts in a credible and engaging way.
In this interactive session, experts and specialists from The Earth institute – Columbia University, Consumers International, Fondazione Ernesto Illy, Mutti S.p.A., Rodale Institute, Too Good To Go will explore the practices with the greatest potential impact at key stages of the food value chain and discuss how to create a food system that optimizes both human and environmental health.
