Through different events and roadshows across Europe, the objective is to set-up a network of interest, to share views and to identify innovation ideas for cross-border collaborations. In this webinar series, the AURORA consortium intends to address the issue of sustainability in the agri-food industry.
This concept is becoming increasingly important, as energy prices soar, and the environmental impact of industrial activities is increasingly questioned. The end consumer is rightly concerned about the impact of his purchase. So what is a sustainable agri-food industry in 2030? What notions, what regulations and especially what changes are behind this term? At what scales should we rethink our industries?
Awareness of the impact of global warming and the responsibility of anthropogenic GHG (Green House Gas) emissions have contributed to the adoption of regulations to reduce GHG emissions. Initiatives such as the Green House Protocol (GHP) offer a framework to identify action levers to reduce GHG emissions within companies but also to control the part linked to supply, in this case upstream agriculture.
Agri Sud-Ouest Innovation and the AURORA consortium propose to address the issue of sustainability in the agri-food industry through a cycle of three webinars with International speakers. These webinars will be coanimated with Mews Partners, a management consulting firm, focusing on industry in Europe and having a specific offer to address sustainability in agri-food industry.
In the last 2 opuses, our experts analyzed in depth the different elements to consider in order to reduce the environmental footprint of our agri-food industries, and we focused on scopes 1 & 2 thanks to testimonials from Solina and Grap’Sud in particular.
In this third and final instalment, we’ll give a brief summary of what was said previously, and then look at the various levers for action that revolve around scope 3. The Cémoi company will be presenting the actions it has implemented around its cocoa sourcing.
