Natural environment

Without a healthy natural environment our food systems are under threat. Protecting our diverse ecosystems, living within the means of our planetary boundaries and protecting the genetic diversity of species used in food and agriculture are all vital components in feeding a global population.

At the Food Ethics Council we champion living within our planetary boundaries.
