Climate Day is designed to educate food industry leaders on the commitments their organizations can make today to help reverse global warming and to galvanize those leaders to get involved and commit to fueling positive climate change in 2017 and beyond. Now is the time for meaningful, measurable action on climate change, and the food industry has a unique opportunity to lead in an area where the U.S. government is pulling back and business can either become an even bigger part of the problem or an actual solution to global warming.
