UB will study our food systems to reduce their carbon impact and aim to reduce food-related carbon emissions by 50% by 2030. Small changes in our diet, like reducing meat consumption, can make a positive impact on the environment.
The Good Food Purchasing Program and the Real Food Calculator will guide UB on its path to assessing the impact of our food system and decreasing it over time. In addition, the working group will develop guidance and policy recommendations that will assist with implementation.
For the first time we have a baseline of our greenhouse gas emission numbers for our food.
