The Food and Drink Dilemna

The global food and drink industry is a significant contributor to the warming of our planet, with the agri-food industry accounting for one third of global greenhouse gases (GHG). As pressure rises across this industry to set and meet sustainability targets, food and drink companies have a significant role to play in mitigating the negative impacts of the climate crisis, along with other social and environmental issues.

Simultaneously, the COVID-19 pandemic caused shockwaves through this industry in 2020 that threatened food security worldwide, caused shifts in consumer purchasing habits and triggered labour shortages that continue to impact farmers and manufacturers. This is a period of transformational change for this industry, that brings with it opportunities to leverage the need for adaptation to optimise performance and embed sustainable practices.

Our global team of sustainable agri-food experts works with clients across the entire value chain to build sustainable agriculture and food production solutions that have business value. From identifying risks and building out strategy to developing technology and tools and engaging stakeholders, we support organisations throughout their entire sustainability journey.
