The Food SIVI Oxford Meeting has been rescheduled for 21-22nd September 2020. This page will be updated when more details are available.
“Measuring and understanding the true cost of our food creates opportunities – not only to mitigate the risks to society but also to help businesses future-proof their strategy. Impact valuation, also termed true cost accounting, is an emerging method aiming to measure and value the environmental, social and health externalities produced by businesses and society. While its implementation is gaining momentum, its application to food systems is challenging.
The annual two-day FoodSIVI meeting brings together academia, industry and civil society to ignite the research and collaborations that will drive impact valuation for food systems. The event is designed to identify opportunities while sharing the latest practice from the impact valuation community.
