Large companies are pivotal to the Australian economy. They provide livelihoods and opportunities to generate economic well-being, as well as the goods and services that we use every day.
However, these companies rely heavily upon natural resources either directly (as in the production and sale of food) or indirectly (for power, water and buildings). How boards and directors manage their businesses can have a huge impact on the health of the environment.
WWF works in partnership with businesses involved in food production, distribution and sale to generate large-scale shifts to more sustainable practices. Food sustainability faces three broad pressures – rapidly increasing demand for food, the impacts of industrialisation on agricultural land, and the emerging and unpredictable threats of climate change.
Unchecked, these pressures will result in a global food crisis. Natural resources will be depleted and the environments used to produce our food will be irreparably damaged.
WWF works with visionary companies to do business differently. These changes often reach far back into the company's supply chain, transforming the operations of producers, distributors and retailers, too. By sharing their motivations and successes with their consumers, these progressive companies also raise awareness of food sustainability issues and potential solutions within the broader community.
To tackle environmental challenges such as food sustainability, businesses globally must do better. WWF is showing them how.
