About Climate-friendly Food Systems and Diets
Whether it’s widespread plastic packaging, high levels of food waste or diets high in meat, our food systems are incompatible with a 1.5 degree future. The farming sector alone accounts for approximately one-third of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
To reform our food system and boost global health we must tackle food production, distribution and consumption, as well as metrics, policies and habits. We need to work with people and places and at the level of global value chains. This Deep Demonstration aims to catalyse a shift towards a sustainable, healthy food system that can feed future generations within planetary boundaries. We are looking to work with challenge owners to address four areas of change within the food system: primary production; food and feed processing and food supply chains; retail and consumer behaviour; and policy and public procurement.
Early partners include a dairy company in Denmark (Thise Mejeri) and the Nordic Council of Ministers; current challenge owners working on food systems are the Government of Ireland.
