SPS 5: Sustainable Food Chains

Drawing on the work of the CCICED SPS on green supply chains, this SPS will focus on the agricultural sector to support a shift to sustainable food systems, including actions to counter food waste, overfertilization/nitrogen/phosphorus issues. Food safety aligned with sustainability, the potential contribution food systems can make to carbon neutrality and nature positive outcomes. Drawing lessons from the 2021 UN Food Systems Summit, the Chief Advisors suggest the following issues that the SPS may wish to consider in its work:

  • Identify opportunities within the food system to contribute to carbon objectives;
  • Identify how priorities of food safety and security, avoided food waste, healthy diets can align with low-carbon and eco-friendly food systems;

Track 2 dialogue can examine opportunities to reduce plastic packaging.
