In this webinar, our experts dive into the challenges and opportunities for actioning sustainable nutrition by answering questions like:
- What falls within the spectrum of sustainable nutrition?
- What tools exist to measure how foods fit into a healthy diet?
- How can they be used to communicate information to consumers or to guide industry renovation and innovation?
- What metrics can we use to track progress toward water use, carbon emissions, land use, etc? Are they accurate and feasible on a large scale?
- What might the future bring for actioning sustainable nutrition?
The idea of sustainable nutrition is driving a foundational change in the way food is produced globally. It is nutrition that is produced and delivered in a way that is mindful for people, the planet, and society. Sustainable nutrition is becoming embedded into the day-to-day thinking and decision-making of consumers as well as strategies of many companies in the food and beverage industry.
However, measuring and communicating progress against sustainable nutrition strategies and targets in a transparent way is challenging. Metrics that are supported by science, feasible to use on a large scale, and easily transparent to consumers and regulatory bodies are essential. How can we make meaningful progress toward an improved food system?
