Over the summer, our interns and volunteers have worked on this promotional video, explaining how easy it is to participate in climate action in Hong Kong, simply by dining at plant-forward restaurants and restaurants that operate to restore our planet. Every act of eating can be a vote to action!

Where are you eating to restore our planet today?

Consumers in the UK, US and other European countries are favoring the idea of carbon labels on food products, which will greatly influence consumers’ purchasing decisions and think deeply about how much their purchase will affect the environment. This idea is not entirely new. Brands like Oatly already have a carbon footprint label on their packaging, but the impact is still undetermined. However, having a carbon footprint label means that companies will have to disclose their carbon emissions data, the public has the ability to hold them accountable and to force them make better decisions on environment protection. It is exciting to see countries like Denmark engaging in such meaningful climate action. 
EU Fighting Climate Change, Starting with all their Products

Companies in the EU or companies selling their products in the EU will soon have to exercise their due diligence to ensure that their products across the supply chain do not contribute to deforestation; meaning more transparency in the industry and for the public. 
“We are serious about fighting climate change and biodiversity loss. Acknowledging that the EU is responsible for around 10% of global deforestation, we have no choice but to ramp up our efforts to halt global deforestation. If we get the balance right between ambition, applicability and WTO compatibility, this new tool has the potential to pave the way to deforestation-free supply chains.” - Christophe Hansen

The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) will be hosting two virtual events in different time zones, offering guidance to companies in Food, Land, and Agriculture (FLAG) sectors to reduce carbon emissions. The guidance will be providing prevalent, robust, and science-based ways for businesses, setting GHG emissions reduction targets, assisting them in their decarbonization process, all in the effort to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
