Campus Food & Energy Seminar

Mar 17, 2014
3:30 pm to 4:45 pm
Davis Center 417 (Frank Livak Room)

The Impacts of Campus Food on Climate Change

Our current food system is extremely energy intensive. The second seminar in this series will explore the ways in which our food system interacts with a changing climate. Chris Gassman will speak to the ways we can measure the energy impacts of the university food system, and how we can help reduce our carbon "foodprint."

Chris Gassman works with businesses on sustainability initiatives, including the development of the Compass Group's "Carbon Foodprint Toolkit," which measures the climate impact of institutional food service.
