Client Federal Environment Agency, BMU

Cooperation partner a’verdis, corsus

The project takes up the approach stated in the National Program for Sustainable Consumption (NPNK) of understanding and promoting sustainable nutrition as a concept that is equally health-promoting and ecological.

First, initiatives and experiences of public and private canteens are examined with regard to essential environmental and health aspects, as well as the possibility of integrating ecologically oriented topics into sustainability contexts. This information is intended to provide assistance for companies and institutions to enable health-promoting and environmentally friendly lunchtime catering.

October 2022 – February 2023

The production and consumption of food in Germany is associated with environmental problems, especially with regard to intensive animal husbandry for food production. Health problems are also associated with the consumption of animal products, such as cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. From the perspective of a more sustainable diet, a ‘Dietary Shift’ is therefore urgently needed (WBAE 2020). Against this background, the DUH project “Positive Campaign to Strengthen Plant-Based Dietary Environments” aims to contribute to reducing the animal share in the diet to a level that is compatible with humans, animals and the environment (One Health approach).
