How can food and farming businesses take practical action to ‘do net zero’ well?

Online Business Forum meeting

A growing number of governments, trade associations and businesses – including in food and farming – have made net zero commitments. This online Business Forum meeting will explore how food and farming businesses can take practical action to ‘do net zero’ well.

Whilst net zero ambitions are widely recognised to be positive moves and much needed, aspects of this remain hotly disputed. Some expect the road to net zero to be a long and winding road. However, many argue that the timeframe for many net zero commitments needs to be brought much closer.

Urgent action is needed in the next 2-3 years. But what climate actions are those leading the way taking? What can we learn from other sectors? How can food and farming businesses take bold action to accelerate the shift to net zero, but with a wide-angle lens (on other issues) not tunnel vision in addressing the climate crisis in isolation?

Speakers will include Professor Mike Berners-Lee, leading expert in carbon footprinting, lead scientific advisor to Brewdog on its Carbon Negative strategy, and author of ‘How bad are bananas? The carbon footprint of everything’. Other speakers will be announced shortly.

The meeting will provide an opportunity to:

  • Learn from climate pioneers on what they have done and what future actions they have planned
  • Explore climate actions food and farming business leaders can and should take now
  • Assess what collective action on net zero might be possible
  • Consider unintended consequences and how to take actions towards net zero that might have multiple benefits
