Food and forests: Accelerating action to reduce Scope 3 emissions

Nov 11, 2022 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Digital Room 1


The world’s food systems urgently need to be reset. Our current systems encroach on the land - particularly forests. This session focuses on three commodities which drive forest loss: beef, soy and palm oil. It will look at how we can best accelerate action to reduce Scope 3 emissions, where deforestation features so prominently. A moderated dialogue will bring forth key interventions we can take to identify, manage and reduce these “last mile” emissions, essential to achieving a net zero world. This session is hosted by the Food Systems, Land Use and Restoration Impact Program (FOLUR).
