Climate Change

“When we think about threats to the environment, we tend to picture cars and smokestacks, not dinner. But the truth is, our need for food poses one of the biggest dangers to the planet.”

  • 1/3 of GHG come from the food system.
  • 80% of GHG emissions from the food system come from agriculture.
