Bæredygtige fødevarer

This page is also available in:

Fødevarer er centrale for vores liv og en integreret del af den europæiske kultur. Den mad, vi spiser, hvordan den produceres, og den mængde, der går til spilde, har imidlertid stor indvirkning på menneskers sundhed, naturressourcerne og samfundet som helhed:

  • Flere og flere borgere og især børn lider af overvægt og fedme på grund af usunde kostvaner.
  • Landbrugere og arbejdstagere får ikke en rimelig pris for deres produkter.
  • En tredjedel af fødevarerne går tabt eller til spilde i fødevarekæden.
  • Miljøet betaler prisen på grund af fødevareproduktionen og -forbrugets dramatiske indvirkning på klimaændringerne, tab af biodiversitet, vand- og luftforurening, jordforringelse osv.

Covid-19-krisen er et wakeupcall om, at det er tid til forandring. Den har understreget, at det ikke er en selvfølge at få fødevarer "fra jord til bord" og vist, hvor tæt forbundet aktører og aktiviteter er i hele fødevaresystemet. Fair, ressourceeffektive, inklusive og bæredygtige forsyningskæder i hele landbrugs-, og fødevaresektoren er mere end nogensinde før nødvendige for at tilgodese borgere, landbrugere, arbejdstagere og virksomheder ligeligt.

EØSU har i mange år været en af de fremmeste fortalere for en bæredygtig og omfattende fødevarepolitik. En sådan integreret og systematisk tilgang er afgørende for at tackle de mange og indbyrdes forbundne udfordringer, der har at gøre med fødevaresystemerne, nemlig opnåelse af økonomisk, miljømæssig og sociokulturel bæredygtighed, sikring af integration og sammenhæng på tværs af politikområder (f.eks. landbrug, miljø, sundhed, uddannelse, handel, økonomi, teknologi osv.) og fremme af samarbejde mellem alle myndighedsniveauer.

    The Commission's initiative follows one of the recommendations of the Agricultural Markets Task Force that the EU should legislate in the areas of UTPs for agricultural products, and responds to some of the conclusions of the 2016 EESC opinion on "A fairer food supply chain".

    The own-initiative opinion, prepared by the EESC Permanent Study Group on Sustainable Food Systems, will aim to identify existing challenges, policy inconsistencies and obstacles to a more coherent food policy approach at EU level; to provide examples of ongoing transitions to more sustainable food policies at local/regional/national level; to highlight the role of civil society in building partnerships among stakeholders across the food supply chain; and to define how a comprehensive food policy for the EU should look, including an indicative roadmap.

    In the past few years, civil society has been increasingly concerned about the environmental and social impact of food production and consumption. At the request of the Dutch EU Presidency, the EESC is preparing an exploratory opinion on how to achieve sustainable food systems in a resource-constrained world. The opinion takes a holistic and comprehensive approach, looking at the interdependence of food production and consumption as well as fostering inter-sectoral cooperation.
