John Mandyck ’89 BA PSt / ’92 MPA co-authors new book on food waste, hunger, and climate change

John Mandyck has recently co-written the book with Eric B. Schulz entitled, “Food Foolish: The Hidden Connection Between Food Waste, Hunger, and Climate Change.” The book details the social, economic, and environmental consequences of throwing away one-third or more of the food we produce each year. The book details the carbon footprint of food waste, which if measured as a country would rank third in the world for greenhouse gas emissions. The book also explores reasons why there are two billion people that are malnourished, despite the fact that we produce enough food to feed everyone. Mandyck serves as the Chief Sustainability Officer for United Technologies Corporation. A global leader in the aerospace, food refrigeration and commercial building industries, United Technologies provides high-technology systems and services with well-known global brands such as Pratt & Whitney, UTC Aerospace Systems, Carrier and Otis. Mandyck also works with universities and other organizations to advance strategies for energy efficiency, food security and sustainability.
