Reducing Global Consumption

Slowing the depletion of natural resources and emissions of greenhouse gases is essential to making sure that society’s needs are met without compromising the needs of future generations, or causing undue damage to ecosystems. We focus on:

Changing consumer practices

Developing policies that encourage people to choose more sustainably produced foods and goods, and allow consumption to fall globally.

Conserving ecosystems

Reducing the impact of agriculture on the environment, conserving biodiversity and reaping the benefits that come from plants and soils to benefit people and preserve nature’s immaterial value.

Shrinking environmental footprints

Using natural resources and energy more efficiently in production, reducing waste, and developing renewable alternatives.
