We live in unique times: The ongoing pandemic has brought us to a new normal, digitalisation is in full swing and there is an urgent need for action for more sustainability in all areas of life. Companies that manage to see these challenges not as a burden but as an opportunity for innovation are able to create competitive advantages and be successful. Harnessing the sustainability potential associated with their digitalisation activities enables such companies to achieve economic goals while bringing about positive socio-ecological impacts.
As part of our 15th year, we are deep diving into four key topics, including digitalisation, to explore how we can enable positive impact right now towards more sustainability and a good life for all. We were curious how our sustainable lifestyle (SL) team works on digitalisation at the intersection of behaviour change towards more sustainability. To find out, we interviewed Rosa Strube, Head of SL Team to discuss its potential. Read the full interview here.

How can we move from attitudes and intentions to action and generate behavioural change towards more sustainable food consumption in Europe? This report helps answer this question by making recommendations to various stakeholder groups on how to support sustainable consumption of food. It draws from research and insights of the latest and most compelling pieces of evidence, including those of behavioural science, aimed at supporting more sustainable and healthier diets in real-life contexts. The report is particularly targeted at policy makers at all levels (local, national, EU), civil society organisations (CSOs) and food industry and distribution actors, especially retailers and restaurants, that have a stake and are engaged in European food systems.
Call for Collaboration
If current food production and consumption practices persist, the EU Green Deal goal of achieving fair, healthy, and sustainable food systems will remain distant and unattainable. In food production alone, too many scarce resources are used, ecosystems are harmed, and water and air are being polluted. Food waste along the entire value chain is a big problem as are conventional food packaging and unsustainable consumption practices. To alter this trend and chart a new course forward, all actors between the farm and the fork should come together and act now. Read our newsletter for further insights and let’s collaborate to make sustainable food systems the norm!

"WRAP are delighted to partner with the CSCP to find ways of transferring the collaborative approach to food waste measurement and prevention in the UK to Germany. Together with the CSCP we want to find innovative ways to decrease food waste in Germany with a broad coalition of companies, civil society actors, political institutions and scientific institutes."
