Book Description :

Transparency for Sustainability in the Food Chain lays out the key issues and challenges in food safety, food quality, chain integrity, the link with consumers, and the technological base of tracking and tracing systems. This succinct volume brings readers up to speed on the state of the art in these areas, and the research trends in specific domains. Transparency in the food sector, especially to consumers, is one of the priority issues on the agenda of consumer policy representatives. Food scandals and deficiencies in consumer communication have drawn increasing demands for food policies that ensure that food is safe and of the quality consumers expect. Further, consumers increasingly expect that food production processes limit negative impacts on the environment and consider social concerns. Moving toward improved transparency requires action by stakeholders of the food chain but also knowledge on where and how to move. Researchers and professionals working in food sourcing, regulation, safety, and distribution will benefit from this clear overview. Specifies research to increase transparency in consumer communication Details the state of the art and research challenges in several specific food supply domains Involves food safety, food quality, chain integrity, the link with consumers, and the technological base of tracking and tracing systems

Book Description :

As technology continues to saturate modern society, agriculture has started to adopt digital computing and data-driven innovations. This emergence of “smart” farming has led to various advancements in the field, including autonomous equipment and the collection of climate, livestock, and plant data. As connectivity and data management continue to revolutionize the farming industry, empirical research is a necessity for understanding these technological developments. Artificial Intelligence and IoT-Based Technologies for Sustainable Farming and Smart Agriculture provides emerging research exploring the theoretical and practical aspects of critical technological solutions within the farming industry. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as crop monitoring, precision livestock farming, and agronomic data processing, this book is ideally designed for farmers, agriculturalists, product managers, farm holders, manufacturers, equipment suppliers, industrialists, governmental professionals, researchers, academicians, and students seeking current research on technological applications within agriculture and farming.

Book Description :

Sustainable Production Consumption Systems brings together a set of designed case studies intended to provide a more in-depth understanding of challenges and opportunities in bringing knowledge and actions closer together for the sustainable management of specific production and consumption systems. The case study approach enabled researchers to engage directly with some of the actors involved in the production, consumption or regulation of specific goods or services and other stakeholders affected by those processes. Such engagement was particularly worthwhile when it helped mobilize actors to pursue linking knowledge with action in ways that improve the prospects for sustainability.

Book Description :

Transdisciplinary engineering transcends other inter- and multi-disciplinary ways of working, such as Concurrent Engineering (CE). In particular, transdisciplinary processes are aimed at solving complex, ill-defined problems, or problems for which the solution is not immediately obvious. No one discipline or single person can provide sufficient knowledge to solve such problems, so collaboration is essential. This book presents the proceedings of the 27th ISTE International Conference on Transdisciplinary Engineering, organized by Warsaw University of Technology, Poland, from 1-10 July 2020. ISTE2020 was the first of this conference series to be held virtually, due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Entitled Transdisciplinary Engineering for Complex Socio-technical Systems - Real-life Applications, the book includes 71 peer-reviewed papers presented at the conference by authors from 17 countries. These range from theoretical and conceptual to strongly pragmatic and addressing industrial best practice and, together with invited talks, they have been collated into 9 sections: Transdisciplinary Engineering (7 papers); Transdisciplinary Engineering Education (4 papers); Industry 4.0, Methods and Tools (7 papers); Human-centered Design (8 papers); Methods and Tools for Design and Production (14 papers); Product and Process Development (9 papers); Knowledge and Data Modeling (13 papers); Business Process and Supply Chain Management (7 papers); and Sustainability (2 papers). The book provides an overview of new approaches, methods, tools and their applications, as well as current research and development, and will be of interest to researchers, design practitioners, and educators working in the field.

Book Description :

This timely book is a sequel to John Grant’s Green Marketing Manifesto which was the award winning and bestselling definitive guide to green marketing (and not greenwashing) in the previous wave of eco marketing in 2007. In 2019, climate change is right back at the top of the public agenda. Greta Thunberg and Extinction Rebellion are front page news. The UK, EU and other governments have declared a climate emergency. 181 CEOs of American companies - including Walmart, Amazon and Apple - signed a Business Round Table declaration saying that the purpose of corporations is not just to make money for shareholders, but to improve society, care for the environment and be ethical. Unilever CEO Alan Jope says they will dispose of brands that don’t have a bigger purpose. Concerns like ocean plastic (the ‘Blue Planet effect’) have upped the pace of change. With ambitious responses such as refills stations, unpackaged goods, super-materials from wood fibre and seaweed and a new ‘milkman for groceries’ reusable packaging service called Loop. Sustainable brands are now outperforming others in most markets. Eco challenger brands like VEJA and Allbirds are ‘the new cool’. While Adidas showed (with Parlay ocean plastic shoes) you can also create a billion dollar mainstream offer. Even banking is changing, with rapid growth in ESG and Impact Investing. Plus, the $40Bn overnight success of sustainability linked loans to companies like Philips and Prada. How can marketing and the creative industries respond? Even Extinction Rebellion thinks we can play a positive role – although XR also say it has to go beyond banning plastic straws - if we can only manage to tell the truth and lead the change. Hundreds of creative agencies and brands came out on climate strike and donated ideas: Or in the case of Patagonia donated their entire $10m tax windfall to environmental causes. But what now? How do you set a positive course? In this book we look at some of the leaders – brands like Patagonia and Max Burgers aiming to be climate positive. And we look at brands who have found a fresh sense of purpose by championing a relevant cause. The book is packed with case studies, tools, research insights. Covering issues like eco labelling, transparency, circular economy, rebound effects, impact investment, new coalitions and developments ranging from sustainable finance, to blockchain and traceability, to regenerative farming. One key theme that carries over from the Green Marketing Book is that marketers need to know their facts if attempts are not to be superficial. When you know 95% of the energy footprint of a mobile phone is in manufacturing and materials (not charging the battery) you know that getting people to dim their screen won’t save much CO2. But that getting them to keep their phone in use for an extra year is a huge win for the planet. The ultimate goal is to go beyond marketing that simply looks good, and to create a vision of marketing that does good. Uncover strategies for sustainable marketing that actually deliver on green and social objectives, not just greenwashing Reconceptualise marketing and business models, and learn to recognise the commercial strategies and approaches that are no longer fit for purpose Learn how hot topics like the climate crisis, single use plastics, and blockchain technology influence green and social marketing Read examples and case studies from both brand leaders and challengers that have developed innovations and fresh creative approaches to green and social marketing Get practical tools, models, facts, plus strategy, workshop and project processes and business case rationales - so that you can build your own plans and proposals This book is intended to assist marketers, by means of clear and practical guidance, through a comp
