Launch of the EAT-Lancet Commission

Home / Launch of the EAT-Lancet Commission
On January 17th, the EAT-Lancet Commission on healthy diets for sustainable food systems will be released in Oslo with a series of launches around the globe planned for the following months.

About the report: Unhealthy food is the leading cause of disease worldwide, and undernutrition is a problem that persists across the globe.

At the same time, food production is causing untold stress to the planet. It is responsible for a third of all greenhouse gas emissions and is the largest driver of biodiversity loss and freshwater depletion.

Meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement targets to reduce carbon emissions means urgently and fundamentally changing the way we eat and produce food. But key questions remain unanswered and a lack of scientific consensus is slowing down governments, businesses and civil society actors who want to take action.
