SLR: Decarbonisation challenges for the Food & Drink sector

14 March 2023

Decarbonisation has become key for all food and drink companies, with the added drivers of the energy crisis and energy transition away from fossil fuels. Many companies have now set targets for net zero with intermediate targets for 2030 and 2040.

There are major challenges for the food and drink sector, including:

  • Decarbonisation of heat
  • Sourcing of renewable energy with increasing competition of resources
  • Availability of capital
  • Competitive strategy

These are just some of the concerns and challenges that will be addressed in this webinar.
