The Sustainable Food Trust will be hosting their first public conference on the theme of True Cost Accounting in Food and Farming on December 6th at the Royal Geographic Society in London, with a pre-conference reception on the evening of December 5th.
The focus of the conference is to discuss and develop solutions for what is one of the most significant barriers currently preventing sustainable food production from becoming mainstream – the absence of true cost accounting in food and farming. Why is it more profitable to produce food in a way that negatively impacts our health and the environment?
Bringing together experts from across food and agriculture, including leading economic thinkers, researchers, policy-makers and food-companies, this event presents a unique opportunity to discuss the development of a new economic model for a sustainable future.
Our panel of international speakers will explore how to identify and price these external costs, and develop the policy mechanisms required to drive the change that is needed.
