Why should you act?

Why you ?

You can create change because:

  • The food sector has a major role to play, accounting for around a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions. You have the power to significantly reduce its impact: reducing transport distances, waste - particularly food waste - meat consumption, etc.

  • You can intercept the market demand of customers who are more attentive to sustainable tourism offerings, proposing new experiences in the food and wine sector.

  • ​You're facing more and more constraints due to climate change: water shortages, extreme weather conditions impacting crops, and so on.

  • You also face a higher level of unpredictability when it comes to the availability, quality and price of raw materials.

Why now ?

To become a change maker, you have to go through four stages that can be summed up in these words: 

Measure - Reduce - Contribute - Adapt

Measure

Floods and harvest

At least 400 million kilos of wheat have been lost in 2023 in the flooded soils of Emilia-Romagna (Italy), where 1/3 of the country's wheat is produced. Fruit harvests will also be compromised over the next five years, with the roots of orchard trees rotting, they'll need to be completely replaced.

Measuring your carbon footprint is the essential starting point for any progress initiative! It enables you to identify the main sources of emissions in your business and act accordingly to reduce them.

Agriculture and catering account for over 18% of tourism's carbon footprint worldwide (Sustainable Travel International, 2018).
