The global food system faces increasing pressures, which will intensify over the coming decades, as demand for resources alongside the effects of climate change collide.
Areas to focus on include to reduce this carbon footprint including promoting efficient water consumption, embracing circular economy models, reducing food waste and non-reusable packaging, minimising food miles, embedding environmental standards in transport practices, and shifting our consumer demands towards more sustainable produce. Institutions should have a good understanding of sustainable supply chains and natural capital, to enable the provision of nourishing and sustainable options for staff and students on campus.
