Bon Appétit partnered with EcoTrust (www.ecotrust.org) in 2007 to compile the best science to date on the relationship between food and climate change. EcoTrust’s work is predicated on the notion - gaining an ever wider currency - that economic and ecological systems are mutually interdependent. Ecotrust employs a wide range of natural resource, research, business, and analysis services to improve the efficiency of resource management and create strategies for enduring prosperity.
