The 2030 Agenda includes a dedicated goal on water and sanitation (SDG 6) that sets out to “ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.” SDG 6 expands the MDG focus on drinking water and sanitation to cover the entire water cycle, including the management of water, wastewater and ecosystem resources. As the biggest water consumer globally, the food industry can play a key role in delivering on the water goal in the SDG agenda by transforming food and agriculture systems, andshifting to more sustainable diets.
At this seminar you will hear from some of the global food companies that have become leaders in water sustainability by promoting sustainable practices in their factories and supply chain while also inspiring consumers to make sustainable food choices. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn from international best-practice, and gain insights on how we can make the transformation to a more sustainable, water-efficient food system.
