ESG best practices for the food industry

Thursday, 25 February | 19:00 GMT | 14:00 ET


Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues have long been a secondary focus for many food companies. In fact, the industry has lagged far behind other sectors like energy and automotive. In 2021 and beyond, the ESG agenda will take centre stage as consumers, investors, and governments demand accountability and compliance to a set of internationally-recognised standards.


  • Overview of ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance)
  • The Business Case for Addressing ESG Issues
  • Best Practices in Implementing an ESG Program
  • How Should Food Companies Get Started?


  • Talita Ramos Erickson, General Counsel (Americas) & CEO (Restaurants), first Global Chief Diversity Officer, Barilla Group
  • William Hughes, Sustainability Services Lead in the UK, Mazars
  • Sandra Noonan, Chief Sustainability Officer, Just Salad

This event is organised by The Food Institute and sponsored by Mazars.
