About the event
This workshop is split over two consecutive mornings, Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th of March, starting at 9.30 am until 1 pm.
Explore changing climate, understand what it means for the food and beverage sector and create a Carbon Reduction & Nature Positive Plan.
Specifically developed for those leading and managing Food and Beverage businesses and brands from farm to fork, this online workshop will give you the knowledge and the tools to understand the key attributes of a sustainable food sector, reduce your Company's impact on the environment, set Net Zero Targets and work out how to get there - turning intent into action.
We show you how to bring your whole team on the journey, how to tell your story authentically, building trust and loyalty with customers and stakeholders - while ensuring you are derisking your business and creating resilience and value across social, ecological and financial pillars.
The workshop covers the science of climate change, local and global impacts and how these affect the day-to-day operations of SMEs and influence procurement and sourcing requirements. Drawing on our experience and expertise in sustainable food systems, sustainable business model design, purpose-led branding, product development and Sustainable Development Goals, we’ll look at how the food and beverage sector can become sustainable and reduce GHG emissions.
During the workshop, we will also support your journey and help you create a Carbon Reduction and Nature Positive Plan.

What is a sustainable food system - it provides healthy and nutritious food to people and creates sustainable environmental, economic and social systems surrounding food. Sustainable food systems start with the development of sustainable agricultural practices, the development of more sustainable food distribution systems, the creation of sustainable diets and the reduction of food waste throughout the system. Sustainable food systems have been argued to be central to many or all of the Sustainable Development Goals.
