Feeding the Planet
without Destroying It

To stop climate change and build a sustainable future food matters – a lot! Though fossil fuels, electricity, transportation, and buildings get much of the attention, what we eat and how we grow is directly responsible for around 22% of human-generated greenhouse gas emissions. More concerning still, food-related emissions are growing even in countries that are beginning to reduce their emissions in other sectors. 

In our next Drawdown Ignite webinar, happening March 28, executive director Jonathan Foley will present a new framework for addressing climate change from food, agriculture, and land use. Plus, he will offer a glimpse into a Project Drawdown Food initiative launching this year that will bring sharper focus to solutions in this space. Register now >>

Identity and resilience as climate superpowers
