CURRENT CAMPAIGNS

CAMPAIGN FOR A SUSTAINABLE GLOBAL FOOD SUPPLY

The global food system is expected to feed a population of 9 billion by 2050 in an ethical, safe, and sustainable manner. The current system cannot meet this demand without irreversibly depleting natural resources and risking livelihoods, which would make everyone vulnerable to food insecurity. Public-private partnerships provide a vehicle by which to tackle this challenge. Concordia’s Campaign for a Sustainable Global Food Supply is working to develop lasting cross-sector solutions that meaningfully advance the international discussion on food sustainability, with a focus on farm animal welfare. Concordia envisions a sustainable global food supply as one that produces nutritious diets for everyone, uses resources efficiently at every stage along the way from farm to fork, and protects the capacity of future generations to feed themselves.

CAMPAIGN AGAINST LABOR TRAFFICKING

An estimated 20.9 million people are trapped in human trafficking worldwide, with 76% of them being exploited for economic purposes. Modern day slavery nets annual profits of $150 billion, touching nearly every industry and country, and leaving every consumer culpable. However, only $120 million in OECD government resources is going to a coordinated, global response. Public-private partnerships are critical to driving down demand and developing mechanisms to eliminate slavery supply chains. Concordia’s Campaign Against Labor Trafficking is leveraging the power of cross-sector collaboration to help create industry-wide change, with a focus on ending modern slavery in the Thai seafood industry. Concordia envisions a future where everyone is paid a fair wage for their contributions to the global market, and human rights are upheld by governments and companies alike.
