Climate action in the food and drink industry

University Alliance are not just talking about the challenges, or long-term consequences, but are taking action, now, to manage and mitigate the effects of the climate crisis. We’re finding practical solutions to pressing climate challenges, making a difference for people in their everyday lives either in new products, innovations, creations or even in driving behavioural change.

The climate crisis also spells trouble for the food industry and the agricultural system that sustains it, and thus actions to address climate change must also confront these issues. At the Alliance, we’re developing research on multiple aspects of the food industry, from the types of things we consume, where our food comes from and who farms it, to learning from the past.
