Demanding Times

There are big wins in tackling what and how we consume food - more sustainable diets, less food waste and shorter supply chains. But will policy makers be brave enough to pursue them? The way we eat needs to change Read the blog.

Food policy for the climate emergency

The way we produce food is threatening life on earth: driving climate breakdown and ecological collapse. But there are major solutions available to us – solutions which can improve people’s health, free up land to create more space for nature, and increase local prosperity. Will policy-makers be brave enough to grasp them before it’s too late?

What's the problem?

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has said that the evidence is clear that the food system is having a massive effect on our planet, driving climate breakdown and species extinction. Yet many of the solutions to climate change also lie in the way we produce food and what we eat.


What's the solution?

We are calling for policy-makers to wake up to the incredible potential of switching to sustainable diets, reducing food waste and shortening supply chains so we can all buy more locally produced food. These three changes could have an enormous impact on the world’s most important task: regenerating nature and ensuring everyone can eat well and sustainably.

We’ve published a new policy brief which explores how policy-makers can push beyond controversy about changing diets, towards effective measures to prevent climate breakdown.
