Ensuring that food-related businesses operate within planetary boundaries
EU food systems need to work with & for nature and biodiversity, not against it. Considering the interconnections between food systems and the environment, from production to consumption, SAFE has continuously strived to promote sounder consumption habits and more sustainable agricultural practices through concrete initiatives seeking to fight food waste and packaging waste, to raise awareness on food safety issues in farming practices, and to share knowledge and foster good practices in sustainable agriculture. We can reduce our carbon footprint by making small, environmentally conscious food choices.
Moreover, SAFE advocates for a horizontal framework to pave the way towards sustainable food systems. We believe that food environments are at the heart of deliberations about food systems change, and we strive for food systems that will support consumers to make better choices.
