EAT-Lancet Commission Report – Summary for Business


14 February, 2019



The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) is working with more than 80 companies to develop a shared ambition for the food systems. Achieving our Healthy People, Healthy Planet vision will require leadership action and wide-scale deployment of business solutions across the value chain of nutrition and health, livelihoods and human rights, biodiversity and ecosystems, and climate mitigation and resilience.

Our future depends on our ability to create a food system that supports healthy people and a healthy planet. Current food systems are outstripping the resources of the planet, while diets are resulting in global health crises of both over- and under-nutrition. All this will be amplified by continued population growth and changes in dietary habits.
