Ulrike Eberle gave a short presentation on the interrelationships between True Cost Accounting (TCA) and Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) to reduce environmental impacts.
“A socio-ecological transformation of food systems is urgently needed. Life Cycle Assessment and True Cost Accounting show where priority action is needed: less animal-based food, more legumes and nuts, more social justice, less food waste and more sustainable agricultural production are the levers. Make sustainable choices easy choices!”
