About this Event
Climate impacts occur at every point in the journey of our food. Food production is responsible for 25% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, though up to a third of this food is wasted, either lost along the supply chain or discarded by retailers or consumers.
In this interdisciplinary session you will hear from leading researchers about the climate impacts of the food supply chain, including sustainable agriculture, consequences for consumer behaviour, and food waste.
- Professor Steve Banwart, Director of the Global Food and Environment Institute and University of Leeds Leadership Chair in Integrated Soil / Agriculture / Water research
- Dr Christian Reynolds, Senior Lecturer at the Centre for Food Policy, City University
- Dr Carrie Bradshaw, Lecturer in Law, University of Leeds
- Professor Caroline Orfila, Professor of Plant Biochemistry and Nutrition, University of Leeds
