Hi all, thank you very much for joining the session!

Ana Gomez
Good afternoon everyone, I am a CSR blogger based in Geneva. https://csrinfluencers.wordpress.com/
Susanne Kat
Please find here one example of one of these rapid outcome papers: https://www.wbcsd.org/Programs/Food-and-Nature/Resources/Science-to-policy-dialogue-for-a-food-and-agriculture-policy-roadmap-Summary-outcome-paper-for-discussion
Susanne Kat
Please find the Chapter on policy recommendations from a consumer perspective, which is the outcome from these dialogues and is launching today at our session: https://www.wbcsd.org/Programs/Food-and-Nature/Food-Land-Use/Resources/Food-Agriculture-Roadmap-Chapter-on-policy-recommendations-from-a-consumer-perspective
Susanne Kat
Hi everyone, there will be a Q&A after the panel, so please feel free to also put your questions in the chat.
David McNair (ONE.org)
Susan's point is critical. What is the 2 Degree target for sustainable food systems that we can track in real-time, has a sense of urgency and creates incentives for all of the key stakeholders to act daily.
CFS Secrtary, Chris Hegadorn
Easy. The 2-degree target is zero hunger and malnutrition in all its forms, staying within planetary boundaries for food production re its impacts on land, air, water, while alleviating extreme poverty.
Madison Wright
I would agree that education is key to better food choices. However, on a personal level I found that despite knowing meat is detrimental to the climate, people still continue to buy meat. Any thoughts on how to change behavior? The US meat industry lobby is so large that policy change seems impossible.
Anne Gadegaard, Novo Nordisk
@Chris: Do you imagine CDP taking this in as a new component?
David McNair (ONE.org)
These real-time metrics are really important. People are constantly responding to digital alerts on how many steps they have walked, how much money they have in their bank account, who is trying to reach them. But when we go to the supermarket the key metric we have is financial cost. Why can't we have a label on the supermarket isle (and then aggregated in an app) that shows you the carbon, calorie, land-use, biodiversity impacts of what you just purchased as well as the cost.
Ana Gomez
Along with raising awareness, cooking skills are also essential to change behaviours, especially at school. Showing what we can cook without always use meat and animal products.
Anne Gadegaard, Novo Nordisk
@David: The Danish retailer COOP have made a climate component of their app - https://stateofgreen.com/en/partners/state-of-green/news/new-supermarket-app-lets-danish-consumers-track-the-climate-impact-of-their-groceries/

We don´t need meat. See the film The Game Changers

Yvonne Gustavsson
Why can´t we forbidd the palmoil industri expansion now also in Africa? We all know it´s not sustainable.
Minna Hellman
@David @Anne The Swedish retailer COOP have created a sustainability declaration including ten different parameters on sustainability to a holistic description of all their products. They will go live to consumers in March 2021. If you are interested in how they have done it you can contact Charlotta.Szczepanowski@coop.se Sustainability manager at COOP Sweden
Anne Gadegaard, Novo Nordisk
@Minna: Thank you - we ie Novo Nordisk are in conversation with the DK COOP on an additional component to their app.
Minna Hellman
@Anne So I’ve heard. Good luck with that!
Anne Gadegaard, Novo Nordisk
Brent Lockridge
Building on Greg’s point….consumers want healthy options at affordable prices, and to a greater and greater degree they want ecologically sustainable foods that are produced by workers (farmers) for fair wages. Education can be acheived at the grade school level in things such as cooking skills, and at point of purchase using easily understood and uniform labels. Affordable foods can be guided by agricultural subsidies. Ethical choices can be addressed by governments supporting regenerative agriculture that pays producers fair wages.

Marissa Siefkes
Thank you to all panelists for this dialogue! You’ve shared thoughts about ag, taxation, labeling policies. What are the highest-impact opportunities you see to leverage health care policy?
CFS Secretariat - Waiganjo Njoroge
CFS is pleased to be part of this conversation. To see more about the policy products that CFS has produced through a multi stakeholder and inclusive approach over the years, please visit our website: http://www.fao.org/cfs/home/en/

Anne Gadegaard, Novo Nordisk
@Susan - couldn't agree more
Anne Gadegaard, Novo Nordisk
@Lujain - couldn't agree more. Getting out of the silos, understanding the interdependencies in order to do clever holistic decisions, before treatment is needed
Renee Robins
Can the panelists comment on what might be learned from the Covid-19 situation about the interactions between scientists and policy makers and the public? In what circumstances have they been effective, or not effective?
Brent Lockridge
Doctors need more education in nutrition
Lujain Alqodmani, EAT
Fully agree, @Brent
Lujain Alqodmani, EAT
Thanks for highlighting that @Anna
which new strategies on consumer education should be focused on as @ Greg mentioned that even as someone with a lot of information on food and nutrition, we fumble with making choices.
CFS Secrtary, Chris Hegadorn
See CFS HLPE's work on the"IMPACTS OF COVID-19 ON FOOD SECURITY AND NUTRITION" at: http://www.fao.org/cfs/cfs-hlpe/en/
Christian Bogen, Bayer AG
Key policy asks would be to have evidence-based metrics that contribute to Solutions related to Climate Change and biodiversity loss, so a GHG and land use Footprint, an interdisciplinary approach focussing on the local agronomic and sustainability challenges (which might be quite diverse)
Brent Lockridge
The American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) is making great strides in education doctors in nutrition.
I think national food-based dietary guidelines, including the sustainability angle is key, but even then the right consumer behavior is not warranted. The challenge is how are we going to nudge consumers? And how can policy help here?
David McNair (ONE.org)
I need to jump to another meeting but thanks everyone for a great discussion.
Alain Vidal (WBCSD)

Clea Kaske-Kuck
Thank you to all our panelists and speakers
@Diane - yes capacity building needs to be incorporated to improve consumer behaviour
Clea Kaske-Kuck
It has been a wonderful engaging discussion and we will be sharing more information soon
Ana Gomez
Maybe businesses could come together with a "nutri-score", but on C02 emissions. And public administration encourage nutrition education with practical knowledge (cooking skills).
Ana Gomez
Thank you!!
