Event date: October 28, 2021

Thursday, 28 October, 15:00–16:00 BST

UK PLC has committed to be carbon net zero by 2050. The food industry has committed to deliver this by 2040. There is a lot to do, and a lot to take into account, to continue to feed the nation, but there are many solutions already available, especially at the agriculture end of the supply chain, which is the source of nearly two-thirds of the food industry’s greenhouse gas emissions. Explore with us how we can take corrective actions now to do what’s right and reduce our industry’s impact on the climate.

Join us for a webinar with RSK ADAS’s food and agriculture industry experts as they discuss the challenges faced by the agricultural part of the food industry in targeting net zero.

How supply chains can work with suppliers to reduce climate impact (Sarah Wynn, Managing Director, Climate and Sustainability)

Sarah has 18 years’ experience working to improve the sustainability of agricultural crop and livestock production. Her particular focus in recent years has been on reducing the climate impact of agricultural production, looking at strategies to reduce on-farm emissions. She works with the supply chain to help it move towards net zero food production but recognises that this is a massive challenge in a natural system, so aims to find practical solutions to help minimise climate impact.

The trade-offs between reducing climate impact and maintaining animal welfare (Jason Gittins, Technical Director for Livestock)

Jason is a highly experienced consultant who works with a wide range of clients, including producers, trade associations, government departments and agencies. His technical expertise centres on the poultry meat and egg production sectors, in which he has worked on numerous projects involving animal welfare and environmental issues and the links between them.

Soil carbon sequestration for climate change mitigation (Dr Anne Bhogal, Principal Soil Scientist)

Anne has over 25 years’ experience in the research and development of policies on soil and nutrient management. She has a particular interest in the impacts of organic amendments and cover cropping on soil health, carbon storage and nutrient cycling. She is a FACTS-qualified adviser and a fellow of the British Society of Soil Science.

🤔 Should businesses offer free period products to staff?

We think they should!
