Hello Food Waste Studies group!

I hope you are all in the best of health. I am forwarding an invitation from the team at WRAP that may be of interest.

Wishing you a great day



Dear Colleague,

I’m writing to invite you to two Net Zero Food System events which WRAP are hosting. Following on from the United Nations Food Systems Summit and ahead of COP26, they will explore how changing the way we grow, process, and consume food can help deliver a Net Zero future.

THE HIDDEN HERO: How can a Net Zero food system be delivered to the benefit of people and planet? 
6th October, 0700-1300 EST/1200-1800 BST/1300-1900 CET
Virtual conference co-hosted with United Nations Environment Programme and World Resources Institute 

You’ll find out the key developments from the UN Food System Summit and its implications for the global food system. You will discover what actions will create a Net Zero food system and hear new research from WRAP setting out the pathway for the UK food and drink sector to make a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, and from United Nations Environment Programme’s on the role of businesses in transforming food systems.

International speakers and moderators include representatives from United Nations Environment Programme, World Bank, Consumer Goods Forum, Unilever, EAT Foundation, Nestle, World Resources Institute, EIT Food, Sodexo and Morrisons. 

This event will be of interest to policy makers, NGOs, businesses and civil society who all have a role to play in driving change.

TACKLING THE FOOD WASTE FUNDING GAP: Financing food waste prevent to combat climate change

Webinar co-hosted with United Nations Environment Programme and P4G – Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030

You’ll hear about the business case for greater funding of food waste prevention initiatives, the barriers to investing and how to overcome them and discover how leveraging existing financial mechanisms can deliver food waste prevention strategies. The event will build upon the United Nations Environment Programme’s Food Waste Index Report which shows that food waste is a global issue on a massive scale.

International speakers include representatives from P4G, Rabobank, World Bank and United Nations Environment Programme.

This event is for you if you have an interest in food security, food poverty or are a food and drink business looking to decarbonise your supply chain to achieve Net Zero.

*The event is one live session held twice to suit different time zones. You can book your place here.
