WHY SHOULD FOOD SYSTEMS TRANSFORMATION MATTER TO YOUR BUSINESS

🍅 At COP28, the food system was declared an important part of any business’ decarbonization plan.

🚜 Agriculture and food are responsible for 86% of the species at risk of extinction.

🐄 Food Systems are the No. 1 source of methane and biodiversity loss, according to the World Bank.

🌾 The IPCC confirms that climate change threatens crop yields and their nutritional content.

🏭 One-third of global greenhouse emissions are attributable to the food system.

EU Regulation is coming thick and fast, and Asia is not immune to the fallout of a lack of preparation.

Do you produce, procure, sell, serve food or host F&B businesses in your commercial space?
