Shaping a Greener Future: Exploring the Sustainable Benefits of Plant-Based Proteins

A major driver of the alternative protein market is the consumers’ desire to live and eat more sustainably. A major question hangs over alternative proteins, are they actually a more sustainable option? The answer is not definitive, in some cases, it can be but in others, it is not so clear. After this webinar, we will better understand how to calculate the emissions of a product and the process by which this can be reduced, whether it be ingredient sourcing and selection or production method. As well as to better understand additional sustainable conditions of Plant-based proteins.

Small changes, big impact: how ingredient decisions affect the sustainability impact of your products

Although plant-based options are generally better for the planet than animal-based products, individual ingredients and their agricultural practices and growing locations are critical in determining environmental impact.

This webinar, hosted by ProVeg International in partnership with HowGood, will shine a light on some common (and not so common) ingredients, and how to tweak formulations or growing locations in order to reduce carbon emissions or water usage. These changes can have a dramatic impact on emissions and provide improved supply-chain stability.

The Climate Smart Roadmap

Pretty much every food & beverage brand now makes some kind of appeal to the consumer about its green credentials, spanning everything from ‘carbon-neutral’ and ‘sustainably-sourced’ to ‘climate-friendly,’ ‘water-positive,’ ‘regeneratively-farmed’ and ‘zero-waste.’ But how do industry buyers – and consumers – assess these claims, make meaningful comparisons between products in the same category, and stay alert to the ever-present threat of greenwashing?

The Big Food Redesign: Making Nature-Positive the Norm
What if food could build biodiversity and tackle climate change? Rather than bending nature to produce food, food can be designed for nature to thrive. By rethinking how ingredients are used and produced, food businesses can provide choices that are better for customers, better for farmers, and better for the environment. Circular design for food uses the principles of the circular economy and applies them across all dimensions of food design, from product concept, through ingredient selection and sourcing, to packaging. This session will describe how circular design for food – fundamentally redesigning product portfolios to use all the diverse food outputs of a nature-positive food system – offers significantly greater benefits than using the same ingredients as today, and requires sourcing them better through regenerative production.
