INVESTORS CALL FOR CHANGE IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY
New reports show that climate change exacerbates the health problems of malnutrition, obesity and other diet-related diseases. Major investors have joined the growing group of health professionals and scientists calling for radical changes in agriculture and food consumption to combat climate change, malnutrition and obesity. Specifically, fast food companies such as McDonalds and Pizza Hut are being called upon to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. While other sectors are making their systems more eco-neutral to emit less co2, the global food industry is lagging behind and even putting pressure on governments to keep sustainability out of dietary guidelines.
