On True Cost Accounting and the Future of Food

A system as vastly complex as food requires a systems approach. To understand and influence the interrelated economic, ecological, and social drivers of our current food systems we are initially focused on the following three impact areas: agroecology; climate, health, and well-being; and true cost accounting.

We aim to make visible the full costs of food by investing in efforts to identify, measure and value the positive and negative environmental, social, and health externalities of food and agricultural systems. Additionally, to deploy innovative strategies to effect associated policy and market change.
