Livewell Webinar: Challenging the myth of cheap food

← Επιστροφή στο Ημερολόγιο

The environmental and health costs of our food consumption are currently not reflected in food prices. Our western diets – high in meat, fat, sugar and highly-processed food – place costs on public health systems and are a key contributor to environmental impacts such as greenhouse gas emissions, soil degradation and water source depletion.

Environmental true cost accounting tries to remedy this by factoring in the full costs this diet has on public health and the environment. True cost accounting traces direct costs and allocates indirect costs by collecting and presenting information about the possible environmental, social and economic costs, benefits or advantages for each proposed alternative. It has been identified by some as a key component to food systems becoming truly sustainable.
