How to Transition Food Supply Chains from Extractive to Regenerative
May 12, 2020
Modern agriculture is extraordinarily efficient and productive, but it has also taken a toll on our planet. The systems that keep our supermarket shelves full also lead to habitat destruction, species loss and significant greenhouse gas emissions. And the balance between food security and environmental protection is only going to get more difficult as the global population continues to grow.
In this webcast, you will hear from the pioneering company leaders, entrepreneurs and policymakers who are transforming food industry supply chains so that the industry can feed more people while also protecting our wild places and fighting climate change. Join us to learn about:
- Tracking and tracing technologies that are bringing transparency to food supply chains
- Regenerative agriculture projects that are cutting greenhouse gas emissions from farms and ranches
- NGO partnerships that are allowing companies to sustainably source agricultural products from developing countries
