The European Commission has presented the European Green Deal, a roadmap to make the European Union economy sustainable by transforming climate and environmental challenges into opportunities.
This Green Deal, together with the European pact for climate, wants to position Europe as the world leader in sustainability, with key dates being 2030 and 2050. It covers all strategic sectors for Europe such as energy or mobility and among them one of the most important is the agri-food sector.
The European Green Pact covers all sectors of the economy. In the agriculture sector, and through the farm-to-table strategy, the European Commission will work with Member States and stakeholders to:
- Ensure that the transition is fair and equitable for all those working in the European agricultural sector.
- Significantly reduce dependence, risk and use of chemical pesticides, as well as fertilizers and antibiotics.
- Develop innovative agricultural and fishing techniques that protect crops from pests and diseases.
The Green Deal covers all links in the agri-food chain, promoting better citizen knowledge, more efficient food production systems, better storage and packaging, healthy consumption and reduction of food loss and waste, and agricultural transformation and transport more sustainable.
At Econatur Ikerketa we work to develop eco-sustainable agricultural management aligned with European objectives, generating more efficient and environmentally, socially and economically sustainable food production systems, so that the transition is fair and integrated by all. Corporate responsibility is one of our differences from our competitors. Believing in what we do and how we do it is our mantra when working and creating a more environmentally, economically and socially sustainable future for ourselves and future generations.
