ZERO HUNGER

Food Security in a Pandemic – How Business Can Help

7th May 2020, 4pm-5pm BST. The COVID-19 pandemic does not affect us all equally. Geographic and economic factors contribute to access and affordability of the basics, which are magnified during an emergency. Businesses, from retailers and logistics, to entrepreneurs and technology, can play a role in delivering food for survival to all, including the vulnerable and marginalised.

The Circular Economy and SDG 2: Zero Hunger – with Steve Butterworth, CEO, Neighbourly

Continuing our deep dive into the Circular Economy as an effective framework for achieving the UN Global Goals, we are focusing on the impact that businesses implementing circular and regenerative practices can have on SDG 2: Zero Hunger. Neighbourly facilitates the daily redistribution of surplus food to thousands of local good causes across the UK and Ireland for Lidl, Aldi, M&S and Sainsbury's, as well as other organisations in the supply chain. We spoke to its CEO, Steve Butterworth, to explore how circular practices help address food insecurity, and what businesses can do to help serve communities.
