Programme

The Climate Smart Food Digital Summit will run over four consecutive weekdays (27th, 28th, 29th & 30th September). Each session will include interactive presentations, panel discussions, audience Q&As, fireside chats and elevator pitches and will last for three hours.
The topics include Supply chain action and impact, Sustainable consumption shift and Innovation for system transformation.

Monday 27th September 2021

Supply chain action and impact | 2pm - 5pm CET / 7am - 10am CST

Food and beverage manufacturers are assessing where they can reduce their impact on climate in a cost-effective manner, in line with the Paris Agreement. Counting the carbon cost of their own operations and that of their supply chains, the F&B sector is leveraging innovative approaches to mitigate emissions associated with food production.

The first day of the Climate Smart Food Digital Summit will cover:

  • Global perspectives on the food system transformation
  • From deforestation-free to forest positive: The food industry’s evolving approach to high risk commodities
  • Upcycling innovation
  • CPG agriculture and procurement strategies
  • Regenerative Agriculture: impact and outcomes

 

Tuesday 28th September 2021

Sustainable consumption shift - Part I | 2pm - 5pm CET / 7am - 10am CST

Consumption is at the heart of a transition to a more sustainable food system. Increasingly savvy and sustainability-minded shoppers are helping speed the pace of change and consumer demand is shaping what areas of action will have the biggest impact at scale. But sticking points remain. How drastically are people prepared to change what they eat? How can the industry overcome scepticism about greenwashing? And what successes have businesses seen in building carbon neutral brands?

Days 2 & 3 of the Climate Smart Food Digital Summit will cover:

  • Retail and the road to Net Zero
  • Towards low impact meat and dairy
  • Case study: Building a carbon neutral brand
  • Greenwashing and the need for radical transparency
  • Food waste in focus
  • Eco and carbon labels: Gimmick or triumph of choice?
  • Plastics innovation and end-of-life
  • Plant-based potential: Dietary diversification for healthy people and planet
