Recipe for sustainable, healthy, nutritious food: changing our consumption
To achieve peak emissions globally by 2025, we need actions which deliver immediate reductions. In our report ‘Net Zero: why resource efficiency holds the answers’ and our latest report ‘Seven Steps Towards Net Zero’ we show how this can be done.
We focus on two critical areas for transforming food systems: food waste and healthy sustainable diets.
We are calling for:
- All countries, particularly G7 countries, to measure and act on the emissions from imported goods generated along their global supply chains (consumption-based emissions).
- All countries to include in their NDCs they submit to COP27 (or future COPs) actions to reduce food waste. This is an essential part of reducing their territorial emissions.
- All food businesses to work with suppliers and partners to set and commit to deliver a greenhouse gas target in line with a 1.5 degrees temperature increase, including their Scope 3 emissions.
