This paper examines how the supply chain and manufacturing process of a key player in the U.S. beer making industry, the Molson Coors Brewing Company, is being (and will be) impacted by climate change, how the company is responding, and additional actions that could be taken to minimize longer-term impacts.
UNICEF must address climate change threats to build a more resilient supply chain for ready-to-use therapeutic foods essential to treating malnutrition
I explore my relationship with almond milk through the lens of WhiteWave, a responsible producer who must consider even further steps to be truly responsible to the state of California.
While the mighty almond may be packed with protein and nutrition the average almond is also quite thirsty for our precious water resources, consuming 1.1 gallons of water for a single nut (2). As the tides rise, dwindling water supplies in California compete with the continued thirst for precious water resources by these delicious and nutritious treats. But, can California continue to balance the fight between its dwindling water supply and almonds hydration needs? The Almond Board of California and Paramount Farms, owner of Wonderful Pistachios & Almonds LLC, claim the industry has taken aggressive action towards bringing sustainability in almond production to the next level.
Droughts are becoming an increasingly significant issue across the world, and its impact are particularly felt in resource strained islands.
As climate change and resulting droughts threaten the world’s water supply, can we afford to keep flushing our problems away? Nonprofit RTI International has developed an incinerator toilet—entirely self-sustaining in energy efficiency—that will revolutionize water use in human waste disposal. http://abettertoilet.org/
As climate change impacts more industries, it begins to raise the question of whether profiting from that climate change is ethical. This topic is discussed by analyzing Monsanto and its growing business of GMO products.
Having reinvented almond milk, Califia is one of the fastest growing beverage brands in the world. But is it helping run California dry?
With some experts predicting an 85% drop in wine production by 2050, we all need to consider stocking up for wine-pocolypse.
Everyone loves Hershey’s Chocolate with a marshmallow and graham cracker over a campfire, but by 2050, due to global warming, we might see drastic shortages in their main ingredient, Cocoa! Without long term sustainable and innovative actions by the company, we might be witnessing the end of chocolate for the masses and the s’mores that come along with it.
