To restrict world warming to 1.5°C, as per the Paris Settlement, greenhouse fuel emissions should halve by 2030 and drop to internet zero by 2050. For the meals trade, which is linked to round one-quarter of complete greenhouse fuel emissions, the strain is on.
How can environmental impacts be diminished throughout meals provide chains and all through product life cycles to make sure private and planetary well being?
At Local weather Good Food 2023, our three-day digital occasion spanning 19-21 September, we’ll be asking how the meals trade may help drive a transition in direction of sustainable meals sourcing, manufacturing, and consumption. Registrations for the free-to-attend digital summit at the moment are open.
Every day the session will run from 2pm CET to 5pm CET and can embody interactive displays, panel discussions, viewers Q&As, fireplace chats and start-up pitches.
19 September: Local weather Good Sourcing
Elements are a serious contributor to FMCGs’ carbon footprints, making sourcing practices essential to assembly carbon discount deadlines. However cultivation shouldn’t be the one consideration: world provide chains are more and more suffering from disruption and have lengthy been linked to human rights violations. How can sustainability be embedded into world provide chains?
On Day 1 of Local weather Good Meals, we’ll be asking how greatest to mitigate towards provide chain disruptions linked to droughts, floods or warfare; what sustainability laws means for meals majors; and whether or not regenerative agriculture can really save the day.
- A ‘fireplace chat’ with Francesco Tramontin, VP, Group Public Coverage Heart, Ferrero, to debate how the corporate is making ready for EU sustainability laws on provide chains
Having formally adopted a legislation geared toward stamping out deforestation in provide chains and seeking to undertake new guidelines on environmental and human rights violations, the EU is making ready for enforcement.

- Begin-up pitches: from cocoa-free chocolate to bean-free espresso
A few of customers’ best-loved merchandise (suppose chocolate and low) are linked to environmental and human rights challenges. Local weather change is threatening manufacturing and smallholder farming makes for advanced provide chains. In response, innovators are rethinking manufacturing to buildout a brand new type of ‘free-from’ class. Be part of these pioneers as they pitch their improvements, from cocoa-free chocolate to bean-free espresso.
20 September: Local weather Good Manufacturing
Feeding rising populations inside planetary boundaries means producing extra, with much less. How can meals and beverage makers enhance output with fewer pure sources? From making the swap to ‘inexperienced’ vitality to implementing water saving methods and rethinking packaging design, we analyse the initiatives decarbonising manufacturing.
On Day 2 of Local weather Good Meals, we’ll be asking how meals majors can decarbonise their direct emissions; the place water inefficiencies are most prevalent and the way reliance may be diminished; what the longer term holds for plastic-free packaging; and whether or not we must always enhance our deal with the blue economic system for sustainable vitamin.
- A ‘fireplace chat’ with Jodie Roussell, World Public Affairs Lead, Packaging & Sustainability, Nestlé, to debate the meals main’s rethinking of packaging to assist obtain its plastic discount targets.

Hear Nestlé unwrap the challenges and alternatives concerned in rolling out sustainable packaging at scale.
- Panel dialogue: Diving into the blue economic system for sustainable vitamin
The ocean covers greater than 70% of the floor of the planet, however supplies simply 2% of total calorie consumption for people. Is that this a missed alternative? From algae-based protein to reimagined seafood manufacturing, we discover new alternatives for oceans and lakes to nourish rising populations, sustainably.
21 September: Local weather Good Consumption
Buyers typically say they need ‘greener’ food and drinks, however don’t at all times act with sustainability front-of-mind. Addressing obstacles to local weather sensible consumption shall be key to reaching meals system transformation. Shopper demand can also be an important piece of the meals tech puzzle, with pioneers banking on us innovating our method out of the local weather disaster. Are Europeans hungry for lab-grown meals?
On Day 3 of Local weather Good Meals, we’ll be asking what influence manufacturers have on discouraging meals waste within the house; how sustainability credentials can greatest stand out on the shelf; whether or not European customers are prepared for cultivated meat and precision fermentation dairy; and what the longer term holds for different protein.

Globally meals waste is a big drawback, and far of it happens within the house, so what position can meals producers like Danone play in serving to to minimise pointless waste? Can model affect move over the edge to assist shift client behaviour?
- Panel dialogue: Pioneering the protein transition for the longer term
Swapping out standard proteins for local weather friendlier options has the potential to decrease a model’s carbon footprint considerably. How are innovators rethinking ingredient manufacturing for the lots? Can they honestly compete with their predecessors on vitamin, performance, and accessibility?
Audio system embody Romain Chayot, managing director, Standing Ovation, and Gregor Tegl, co-founder and CEO, Arkeon.
