The world’s food system is responsible for around 30% of global energy consumption. Reducing the emissions intensity of food is critical to achieving our goal of a net zero world by 2050.
Our food system includes production, processing, packaging, distribution and consumption. Our Food program works with powerful coalitions of businesses and governments to target a range of issues within the food supply chain, particularly in agriculture.
Nearly all of last year’s harvest came from Rendleman Orchards in Alto Pass, Illinois, more than five hours south of Chicago. Now, in the pilot’s second year, the farm is shipping fruit to food banks again, alongside a larger roster of local growers.
