Protecting food supplies, nature and the climate

The problem: Climate change is disrupting our food supply — while food production causes an estimated 30% of climate pollution. This includes too much methane and nitrous oxide, greenhouse gases which contribute heavily to the most immediate impacts of global warming.

What we’re doing about it: We’re working with farmers, fishers and other partners to reduce climate pollution from food production. At the same time, we’re pushing to rapidly diversify food supply and distribution systems, ensuring that everyone has reliable access to nutritious food.
