22-23 Mai 2023 National Conference "Biodiversity in the Food Sector"

Hardly any other industry is as dependent on intact ecosystems and their services as the food sector. But overexploitation, pollution, habitat destruction and the climate crisis have been leading to a steady increase in species extinction for years – according to the World Biodiversity Council, around one million species worldwide are acutely threatened with extinction. So how can the food industry respond to this trend and develop more sustainable strategies for the future? What levers can be used to better protect ecosystems? These and other questions were discussed at the specialist conference “Biodiversity in the Food Sector” on May 22 and 23, 2023 at the Evangelische Akademie in Frankfurt am Main.

As part of a kick-off conference, we provided information on the topic on 20.05.2021, shortly before the “International Day for Biological Diversity”.
