Convened by thirteen co-organizers, including civil society, academia and the private sector, the Bold Actions for Food as a Force for Good is a pre-event to the UN Food Systems Summit (FSS) to take place in fall 2021.
During this session, WBCSD will present its newly launched Healthy and Sustainable Diets Roadmap, which sets out transformational targets, key action areas, and solutions urgently required to achieve healthy and sustainable diets for all. WBA will present the progress on developing the Food and Agriculture Benchmark – the private sector accountability mechanism for 350 of the largest food companies across the value chain to be launch at the Food Systems Summit. With the session taking place in the hour before the CEO Roundtable, we hope to complement the discussion by grounding the role of the companies in concrete guidance and action.
The session provides an opportunity:
- To mobilize business leaders towards the urgent implementation of impactful business-led solutions to deliver healthy and sustainable diets
- To call for multi-stakeholder collaboration and a supportive enabling environment to unleash private sector potential
- To translate the tools presented by WBCSD and WBA into collective action to drive company performance towards food systems transformation along and across the Food Systems Summit Action Tracks
