Circular Economy Month: Sustainability

One of the European strategic objectives is to turn our continent into the first climate neutral by 2050 and the way to achieve this is through a sustainable and inclusive growth strategy to boost the economy, improve people’s health and quality of life, take care of nature and leave no one behind.

It is vitally important to comprehensively address the challenges of sustainable food systems and recognize the intricate links between healthy people, healthy societies and a healthy planet; all in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The shift to a sustainable food system can bring environmental, health and social benefits, offer economic benefits, and ensure that recovery from the crisis puts us on a sustainable path.

The pandemic has highlighted the importance of a strong and resilient food system that works in all circumstances and is capable of guaranteeing citizens access to a sufficient supply of food at affordable prices. It has also made us very aware of the interrelationships between our health, ecosystems, supply chains, consumption patterns and the limits of the planet.

Don’t miss the interviews that await us this month, where you can discover the most interesting stories and examples around sustainability and the circular economy!
