Event description

To celebrate Earth Day, Food Systems for the Future, Food Tank and The Environmental Defense Fund are collaborating to host a webinar focusing on the food industry’s efforts to reduce methane emissions and how these cannot compromise access to affordable, nutritious food.

This webinar seeks to raise awareness, facilitate open dialogue, share innovative solutions that reduce methane emissions without compromising on nutrition, and begin to discuss a more productive pathway forward together.
