From commitments to action: What does a credible climate action plan look like in the short, medium, and long term?

11:05 - 11:40
Most food and beverage brands have now detailed their ambitions on climate. The majority can be neatly summarised by one clear goal: net zero by 2050. To achieve this, brands require a detailed roadmap with clear action plans based on science-based targets and realistic but ambitious milestones. They also just need to get going. 
Milestones are already looming large for 2025 and 2030. But are we spending too much time focusing on ambition over action? 
In this session, we’ll assess how leading brands are working to implement their climate action plans. We’ll take a look at:
-          How 2050 targets translate into ambitious yet realistic action in the short, medium, and long-term
-          How leading companies are benchmarking performance and ensuring they stay on track for long-term targets
-          Where companies are falling short on decarbonisation targets, and how these challenges can be addressed
