Climate Footprint Labelling
A GLOBAL EVENT FOR HEALTH PROFESSIONALS, POLICY MAKERS, ACADEMICS AND STUDENTS
PART OF THE SYMPOSIUM ‘SHIFTING OUR FOOD SYSTEMS FOR CLIMATE AND HEALTH’
Session Outlines and Learning Objectives
The lecture will cover: How climate labels play a part in getting the food industry to address climate change seriously. How a complete decarbonisation strategy is consistent with business growth and profits, now and in the future. It also covers how a digital platform is necessary for a rapid and cost-efficient decarbonisation of the food supply system.
- The special role of climate change relative other sustainability topics for food
- How quantitative climate labels are changing the landscape and waking the food industry up; the last industry to realize that they cannot ignore this.
- How a SaaS platform can solve the standardisation and collaboration problems, that consultancy standards (ISO, PEF, etc) cannot solve and the need for a complete separation of method discussions and the execution of assessments and data collection

- Describe why climate change should not be bundled with other sustainability issues
- Describe how climate labels create a decarbonisation incentive structure similar (yet weaker) to market based public policy and thus paves the way for such policy

For over 25 years, we have exclusively focused on developing expertise around oats: a global power crop with inherent properties suited for sustainability and human health. Our commitment to oats has resulted in core technical advancements that enabled us to unlock the breadth of the dairy portfolio, including alternatives to milks, ice cream, yogurt, cooking creams, and spreads. Headquartered in Malmö, Sweden, the Oatly brand is available in more than 20 countries globally.
We aim to help drive a systemic shift in society to a more plant-based food system to tackle climate change and public health challenges. We always aim for our products to have as good as or better nutritional profile than the dairy benchmark.
