Roundtable on Biodiversity

Roundtable “Biodiversity Performance in the Food Sector”

The aim is to raise the biodiversity performance of the sector by commonly accepted and implemented priority criteria for biodiversity for the whole food sector. The project partners bring stakeholders from the food sector together in order to promote dialogue and starting sector initiatives, e.g. as a round table on biodiversity in the food sector. This initiative will provide ground for more and regular exchange among representatives from the food industry standards organization and other stakeholders.

Topics of the national food sector include:

  • Implementation and continuous improvement of a basic set of criteria for biodiversity for the food sector.
  • Dissemination and application of trainings modules on biodiversity for representatives from the food sector
  • Expansion of the Biodiversity Monitoring Systems and publication of monitoring results on a regular basis
  • Information and sensitizations of consumers about the value of biodiversity for sustainable food systems and health

The consortium of Global Nature Fund, LCF, Solagro, IST and FGN has started with the preparations for sector Initiatives. Preparatory multi-stakeholder meetings have been hosted in various European cities. The official launch of the Initiative „ Biodiversity Performance in the Food Sector” in Germany will be in the second half of 2020.
