Laura Heerema (NL)

Speaker (GiantLeaps)

Laura Heerema is the founder of GiantLeaps. She helps caterers, events, and restaurants to become aware of their impact and make their menu's future proof. As the worldwide food industry is responsible for a third of all greenhouse gasses being emitted, food is the number one topic where every individual can make a difference. GiantLeaps believes that making people aware of their impact is the first step towards positive change. This is why they developed the GiantLeaps Impact Tool. An automated tool that calculates the climate impact of food. Because food should score high regarding all aspects: taste, looks, and sustainability.

Laura is part of the DJ100 (Dutch Sustainable Young 100) and Food100 (100 changemakers in the food industry)
