As we look to the future, the food industry as a whole is facing a daunting task – how do we feed a growing population using fewer resources and amid a changing and unpredictable climate? And in many ways, it all comes down to water. Demand for water is increasing as population, agriculture and energy needs grow, while supply is becoming more unpredictable due to the impact of climate change.
Food companies need to play an active role, both in mitigating water stress and in adapting to it to ensure the resilience of their business and their communities. Companies are coming together to share best practices and tools and take collective action in at-risk watersheds to address these issues at scale. Join the discussion with key leaders in the Water Resilience Coalition to hear how companies are prioritizing water in practical ways. This session will be live to facilitate Q&A and will be recorded for on demand viewing. Register now and stay tuned for additional Sustainability Conversations.
