Sustainable Food Systems

It is estimated that 20-30% of climate change impacts in the world are a result of the production and consumption of food. As producers, retailers and consumers, we can all work together to help reduce these impacts.


Under the Sustainable Food Systems Program, Net Impact Montreal works to help cafes reduce their carbon footprint and help them embrace and benefit from being a sustainable business. The Program also increases awareness and educates the general public of how to increase sustainability in food systems and to promote a circular economy.

We partner with other nonprofits to strengthen the sustainable food systems network here in Montreal - Net Impact Montreal is the English Partner of La table, a consortium of players based in Montreal working to promote sustainable food system practices
