The true costs of the impacts of the current food system as well as the need for an economic conversation about food system transformation were highlighted in the recent Food System Impact Valuation (FoodSIVI) webinar. The event, which took place on 21 September 2020, featured leading experts on academic, civil, and business fronts.
The third webinar on food system impact valuation in June 2021 will consider examples from leading companies on how the true cost of food is being reflected in the corporate accounting and reporting of the food sector. It will also discuss the potential of technology and data in non-financial accounting and reporting in the future.
The next webinar on food system impact valuation in March 2021 will tackle the question: how should the cost of the food be reflected in the corporate accounting and reporting of the food sector? This webinar features leading developers of accounting and valuation methods for food system impact.
The new FoodSIVI report, Valuing the Impact of Food, provides a pathway towards costing the impact of getting food on our plates, which include diet-related disease, poverty and use of natural resources. Recovering those costs would result in a tremendous change in human and social welfare and a very different global future.
