Addressing the environmental impact of animal agriculture in 23 minutes

As part of a new multimedia channel launch, we sit down with the sustainability leads at Danone and Upfield to look at the “unspoken truth” of animal agriculture and how switching to plant-based food offerings can play a part in reaching net-zero.

At the edie 24 event in London last month, our award-winning editorial team hosted a series of punchy decisions intended to enlighten and inform audiences on the most complex and hotly debated topics in corporate sustainability.

In this discussion, edie’s editor Matt Mace sits down with Hannah Cornick, Head of Sustainability and Social Innovation, Danone, and Sally Smith, Chief Sustainability Officer, Upfield to look at how the food and manufacturing sectors are starting to turn toward plant-based solutions to reduce emissions.

The discussion looks at how firms can wean themselves away from meat and dairy in the supply chain, as well as tips to engage consumers to help inform them about sustainable food choices.

This is the third in a six-part series of edie Extra discussions launched last month in London. Episode 1, focused on the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), can be listened to or watched here.

Episode 2, is focused on decoupling emissions from growth, and can be listened to or watched here.

Episode 3 provides a succinct, 10-minute breakdown of the UK’s green policies. Listen to that here.

Episode 4 covers all the recent additions and amendments to non-financial reporting requirements and can be listened to or watched here.
