Part 2 of the study on the environmental impact of German food, conducted by corsus on behalf of WWF-Germany, was published today. In the second part of the study, the focus is on water consumption and the water scarcity footprint of the German diet.
Although the protection and promotion of biodiversity is one of the greatest challenges of our time, it is difficult to measure the impact of products and services on biodiversity.

Following the example of France and Great Britain, there is now also a Citizens’ Climate Council in Germany. The task of the Citizens’ Council, which consists of 160 randomly selected citizens, is to jointly discuss how “compliance with the German climate protection targets can be achieved fairly for all”. They will be accompanied by “leading experts from science and business”. Dr Ulrike Eberle from corsus is one of these experts. She will speak this evening at the Citizens’ Council on food and climate change and recommendations for sustainable nutrition.
