Nourishing a better planet: how to progress sustainability in the nutrition industry
Sustainability matters. For consumers, health of the planet has overtaken health of people in 2022 as their number one priority. Food and beverage brands are under increasing pressure to demonstrate their sustainability achievements – and their ambitions. And for farmers – whose livelihood can be threatened by a changing climate – reducing emissions and protecting biodiversity are becoming an increasingly important concern.
Sustainability has rocketed up the global agenda and so too has consumer cynicism. Demonstrating measurable progress is key to protecting against accusations of green-washing. Reducing carbon emissions is a universally understood and accepted goal, but proving exact numbers comes with its own challenges. Offsetting carbon emissions is another popular approach when further reduction isn’t currently feasible, but that brings its own target-setting and measuring challenges. So how can nutrition brands make meaningful progress in their sustainability initiatives? And how can they set and measure sustainability targets that not only make a positive impact on our climate but also build trust with consumers?
Join our latest webinar on 29 September to:
- Hear from a variety of stakeholders across the value chain including farmers, ingredient experts and carbon-offsetting professionals.
- Learn how to set meaningful sustainability targets in the dairy, food, beverage and nutrition industry.
- Learn how to use the latest technology to measure the impact of your sustainability targets.
