Fixing the business of food

To assess the sustainability of several major food companies, the following questions were used as guides:

  1. Does the company contribute to healthy and sustainable dietary patterns through its products and strategy?
  2. Are the company’s production processes economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable?
  3. Are the company’s global supply chains sustainable?
  4. Is the company a good corporate citizen?

The report concludes that, while many food industry leaders have made progress, much more needs to be done to make the industry more sustainable, including making sustainability reporting more systematic and detailed.
