Anne Charlotte Bunge's research focuses on the transformative potential of novel food system technologies for the Nordic food sector
Bunge is a PhD candidate at the Stockholm Resilience Centre. Her research focuses on assessing the sustainability of novel food system technologies and their transformative potential for the Nordic Countries. To undertake this research, she applies an inter- and transdisciplinary approach using, among others, life cycle assessment studies and the keystone actor concept.
Before starting as a PhD candidate, Bunge was an intern at the World Health Organisation Office for non-communicable diseases in Moscow where she conducted her Master's thesis on sustainable food profiling models as a policy tool.
She holds a MSc in Public Health from Charité in Berlin where she was active as a Campus Ambassador for the Planetary Health Alliance, raising awareness on the interconnectedness of environmental degradation and human health.
As part of her studies, she completed a study exchange at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Kumasi, Ghana. During her Undergraduate studies in Health Sciences at the University Bremen, Germany, she did a research semester at the Sahlgrenska Academy in Gothenburg.
Before commencing her PhD, Bunge worked as an external consultant for the European Public Health Alliance in Brussels, disentangling the human health implications of animal-based food products in the European Union.

Sustainable food profiling models to inform the development of food labels that account for nutrition and the environment: a systematic review
Journal / article | 2021
Sustainable food profiling models (SFPMs) are the scientific basis for the labelling of food products according to their environmental and nutritional impact, allowing consumers to make informed choices. We identified ten SFPMs that score individual foods according to at least two environmental indicators, with the most common being greenhouse gas emissions (n=10) and water use (n=8). Six models additionally assessed the nutri...
