[B Lab Series] Winning the War on Food Waste

Each year, about a third of the food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted. Food loss and waste contributes to some of the most pressing health, environmental, and economic challenges of our day, accounting for 8% of all greenhouse gas emissions and $1 trillion in economic losses annually. How can businesses innovate and help win the fight against food waste?

In this episode, we explore how global brands like Danone are contributing to aggressive targets aimed at reducing food waste. We also discuss how social impact companies, like Too Good to Go, are pushing for policy and behavioral change by building a movement of food waste warriors.

Featuring: Surbhi Martin, Vice President of Marketing at Danone North America, Philippe Schuler, Global Impact Manager at Too Good To Go, Maximo Torero, Chief Economist at the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization , and Juan Pablo Larenas, Executive Director of B Lab Global.
