Biodiversity in Standards and Labels for the Food Industry

Biodiversity in Standards and Labels for the Food Industry

The Global Nature Fund, Lake Constance Foundation, Agentur AUF! (Germany), the Fundación Global Nature (Spain), Solagro and agoodforgood (France) and Instituto Superior Técnico (Portugal) have initiated the EU LIFE Project “Biodiversity in Standards and Labels for the Food Industry”.

The main objective is to improve the biodiversity performance of standards and labels within the food industry, by supporting standard organizations to include efficient biodiversity criteria into their schemes; and motivating food processing companies and retailers to include biodiversity criteria into their sourcing guidelines.
