When it comes to greenhouse gas emissions, not all foods are created equal. Some foods, especially animal products, have a much larger climate footprint than others—but diets in the developed world are often overlooked in climate action conversations. At this event, panelists will discuss how cities, businesses and organizations can work together to enhance climate action through demand-side food and agriculture initiatives and creative menus, and how they’re uniquely positioned to help reach mitigation targets through policies, procurement and other strategies such as Meatless Monday. Panelists include representatives from the Bedford 2020 climate initiative, the Good Food Purchasing Program, and chefs who have successfully incorporated sustainability into their menus. The panel will be followed by a networking reception with light fare.
