Website for the ‘Climate Impacts of Food’ project (CLIF) launched by WWF Germany. Corsus is represented as project partner.
From May 10-13, the third working group meeting of Working Group 4 of the Consumer Information for sustainable consumption and production (CI-SCP) program of the One Planet Network took place. The group, which focuses on biodiversity communication, met on the beautiful island of Vilm at the International Academy for Nature Conservation (INA) of the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN). Nico Mumm from corsus presented as external expert the CLIF project, which is funded by the BMUV in the framework of the International Climate Initiative (IKI).
For the first time, the impact of nutrition in Germany on biodiversity has been determined. The study “So schmeckt Zukunft: Der kulinarische Kompass für eine gesunde Erde. Nutrition and Biodiversity” was published today by WWF Germany. The study is based on a life cycle assessment prepared by corsus – corporate sustainability GmbH for WWF.
Papers for a Special Issue of the International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment on ‘The Role of Developing and Emerging Economies in Sustainable Food Systems’ can be submitted until 1 July 2022.
What are the characteristics of environmentally friendly and health-promoting communal catering? How can kitchens and guests be won over for such catering? And how are the general conditions, the guests’ wishes and the fundamental orientation of company and university catering currently changing? corsus provided information on the environmental impact of food at the final event of ‘umEssKantine’ .
Together with WWF Germany and TMG, corsus is developing a recommendation for a communication tool that is suitable for providing information on the environmental and sustainability impacts of food.
On 22 September, the European Federation of Food Science and Technology (EFFoST) organised the online seminar ‘Sustainability Assessment of the Food Chain’. The seminar attracted well over a hundred interested participants. The introductory lecture was given by Dr Ulrike Eberle of corsus.
2020 / 21 is the Science Year of the Bioeconomy. The aim is to show “which bioeconomic approaches science and research can already use today to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals”. In the column “Heads of Change”, experts provide insights into research approaches and questions that arise with regard to the necessary socio-ecological change. Dr Ulrike Eberle from corsus is one of these experts.
In the current episode of the Scientists for Future podcast, Dr. Ulrike Eberle, together with WWF Germany’s Tanja Dräger de Teran, presents the sometimes surprising results of the study on water consumption.
Every year, around 12 million tonnes of food are thrown away in Germany. An unimaginably large number. And one thing is clear: every tomato that is disposed of, every apple that is thrown away, every milk that has gone bad, every portion of food of which half went back would have been better eaten.
