Join us on Tuesday, June 20 at 10 a.m. ET / 4 p.m. CEST for a 60 minute webinar on:
Environmental sustainability in the food industry: Making the transition globally
Global systems such as climate, biodiversity, land cover and the nutrient cycle are at risk. Agriculture and food production are a cornerstone of these systems, therefore environmental sustainability is of key relevance for players in the value chain – from farming to consumption. Join us on June 20 where we will explore our planetary boundaries and how the agri-food sector can lead in the green transition, taking into account how policy is able to drive sustainable development. Discussions will entail…
- What are planetary boundaries and how does agriculture and food production link to it?
- How is environmental sustainability translated into global policy?
- What are ways of leading the green transition in the agri-food industry?
- What role can industry associations play?
After this webinar, you will have a deeper understanding of:
- We have certain planetary boundaries and key pillars are at risk (e.g. climate, biodiversity, land cover (deforestation), the nutrient cycle (fertilizer and manure pollution)
- Agriculture and food production play an important role in these systems, and businesses in the value chain, especially upstream, have several pathways towards more sustainability
- From a geopolitical perspective, environmental sustainability is now translated into the policy agenda globally (UN SDGs, EU Green Deal).
- Industry associations can play a crucial role at the level between food & drink producers and policy makers, as they are vehicles for participation and collaboration, to ensure that the sector can make its contribution to the transition.
