Sustainable Supply Chain

The demand for resources i.e. food, feed, fiber, energy and water will increase as the world population continues to grow and climate change impacts continues to become more noticeable.  Sustainable food production methods that do not exhaust the planets limited resources, especially water and energy, will become increasingly challenging.  With assistance from the US EPA, the EcoComplex has conducted research on aspects of the food supply chain that contribute to global climate change. We have worked with many pre-consumer sectors of the food supply chain by holding educational workshops and seminars about how they can adapt new technologies and practices to reduce their carbon footprint.
