This online event series examined the importance of public policy in directing finance towards climate-friendly diets, including how the public sector can support a transition to sustainable diets to improve public health, reduce greenhouse gas emissions arising in the food system and increase animal welfare.
In support of the event, three briefing notes outline recommendations for using public procurement and financial disclosure as policy levers to shift to healthier and more climate-friendly diets. These short papers outline the case for change, the relevant policy context and provide concrete recommendations for policy makers to catalyze the shift.
