Grains of Truth: Neue EAT-GlobeScan Global Consumer Research zu gesunden und nachhaltigen Lebensmittelsystemen

Published

on

Erschwinglichkeit und Verfügbarkeit sind die größten Herausforderungen für eine gesunde und nachhaltige Ernährung

OSLO, Norwegen, 23. September 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Nur der Hälfte der Menschen weltweit (53 %) fällt es leicht, gesunde und nachhaltige Lebensmittel zu kaufen, so eine neue globale Verbraucherumfrage, die von GlobeScan, einem Beratungsunternehmen für Wissen und Strategie, und EAT, der wissenschaftlich fundierten gemeinnützigen Organisation für die Umgestaltung des globalen Lebensmittelsystems, durchgeführt wurde. Die größten Hindernisse für diejenigen, die Schwierigkeiten haben, gesunde und nachhaltige Lebensmittel zu kaufen, sind jedoch die Erschwinglichkeit (48 %) und die Verfügbarkeit (36 %), wobei ein Viertel der Menschen angibt, nicht zu wissen, was gesunde und nachhaltige Lebensmittel sind.

Die Ergebnisse des neuen Berichts, Grains of Truth, befassen sich mit den Meinungen von mehr als 30.000 Verbrauchern in 31 Märkten auf der ganzen Welt über ihrer Definition von guten, gesunden und nachhaltigen Lebensmitteln. In der Umfrage wurden die Menschen auch zu anderen Themen befragt, z. B. zu ihren größten Sorgen in Bezug auf die Lebensmittelproduktion und zu den Herausforderungen, denen sie beim Kauf gesunder und nachhaltiger Lebensmittel gegenüberstehen, sowie zu der Frage, wer den größten positiven Einfluss auf die Schaffung eines gesünderen und nachhaltigeren Lebensmittelsystems haben kann. Diese Forschung wurde im Rahmen der Aktivitäten rund um den Food Systems Summit der Vereinten Nationen durchgeführt, bei dem EAT den Action Track 2 leitete, der sich auf die Umstellung des Konsums auf nachhaltige Muster konzentriert.

Viele Menschen tun sich schwer damit, zu verstehen, was gesunde und nachhaltige Lebensmittel sind, aber es besteht auch Einigkeit darüber, dass die beiden Begriffe unterschiedliche Bedeutungen haben. Die beliebtesten Bezeichnungen für gesunde Lebensmittel sind nahrhaft (47 %), biologisch (47 %) und unverarbeitet/vollwertig (44 %). Bei den nachhaltigen Lebensmitteln sind die drei wichtigsten Beschreibungen gut für die Umwelt (51 %), biologisch (42 %) und lokal angebaut (34 %).

Die verschiedenen Generationen haben ähnliche Ansichten über nachhaltige Lebensmittel, aber es gibt Unterschiede, wenn es um gesunde Lebensmittel geht. Die Generation Z beschreibt gesundes Essen am ehesten als schmackhaft und nahrhaft, während die Baby-Boomer es mit unverarbeiteten/vollwertigen und lokal angebauten Lebensmitteln assoziieren.

Bei der Betrachtung einiger Probleme des Lebensmittelsystems sind die beiden größten Sorgen der Einsatz von chemischen Pestiziden und Düngemitteln (81 %) und Einweg-Plastikabfälle aus Lebensmittelverpackungen (78 %). Dicht gefolgt von Hunger und Fettleibigkeit: 76 Prozent der Menschen geben an, dass sie sich über beide Themen Sorgen machen. Diese Bedenken werden durch die Tatsache untermauert, dass einer von 11 Menschen chronisch hungrig ist und ein Drittel der Weltbevölkerung übergewichtig ist. Das Thema, das die Menschen am wenigsten beschäftigt, ist der Transport von Lebensmitteln.

Es mag überraschen, dass die Besorgnis über die einzelnen Themen mit dem Alter zunimmt, wobei die Generation Z im Durchschnitt am wenigsten und die Babyboomer am meisten besorgt sind. Aus regionaler Sicht äußern die Verbraucher in Lateinamerika, Afrika und Südeuropa die größten Bedenken hinsichtlich des Lebensmittelsystems.

Fast die Hälfte der Verbraucher (46 %) ist der Meinung, dass die Verantwortung für positive Veränderungen zur Schaffung eines gesünderen und nachhaltigeren Lebensmittelsystems bei den nationalen Regierungen liegt. Mehr als ein Drittel (37 %) ist der Meinung, dass Lebensmittel- und Getränkehersteller am besten in der Lage sind, dies zu erreichen, während 23 Prozent der Meinung sind, dass Menschen wie sie selbst in der Lage sind, einen positiven Wandel zu bewirken, und jeder Achte (15 %) sieht junge Menschen als mächtige Akteure des Wandels.

Dr. Gunhild Stordalen, EAT-Gründerin und Vorstandsvorsitzende, äußerte sich zu den Forschungsergebnissen: „Diese Forschungsergebnisse sind sehr ermutigend, denn die Menschen auf der ganzen Welt verstehen, welche wichtige Rolle sie durch ihr eigenes Konsumverhalten bei der Veränderung der Lebensmittelsysteme spielen können. Aber es gibt auch noch viel zu tun, sowohl für die Regierungen als auch für die Lebensmittelhersteller – es sind diese Akteure, die in den Augen der Verbraucher die Macht haben und auf die sie folglich hören werden. Und das Entscheidende ist, dass die Menschen zwar zu gesünderen und nachhaltigeren Ernährungsgewohnheiten übergehen wollen, aber derzeit nicht daran glauben, dass sie dies tun können, weil die Produktpreise ihrer Meinung nach entweder zu hoch oder schwer zu finden sind. Dies ist etwas, woran Politiker, Einzelhändler und Hersteller arbeiten und was sie verbessern müssen, damit wir alle gemeinsam ein gesünderes Konsumverhalten fördern können

Chris Coulter, CEO von GlobeScan, sagte: „Diese zeitgemäße Untersuchung liefert einen Fahrplan für die Erwartungen der Verbraucher an ein nachhaltiges Lebensmittelsystem. Der Nachweis der Umweltverträglichkeit ist für Menschen auf der ganzen Welt ein Kriterium für nachhaltige Lebensmittel, und es gibt ein hohes Maß an Besorgnis über eine Reihe von Problemen, die sich auf das Lebensmittelsystem auswirken, von der Verwendung von Pestiziden und Kunststoffen bis hin zu Fettleibigkeit und den Auswirkungen auf die Natur. Darüber hinaus machen die Verbraucher die Regierungen und die Wirtschaft in besonderem Maße für die Schaffung eines nachhaltigen Lebensmittelsystems verantwortlich, was den UN-Gipfel für Lebensmittelsysteme zu einer wichtigen Gelegenheit macht, den Menschen auf der ganzen Welt Fortschritte zu demonstrieren.”

Die Veröffentlichung dieser Studie ist Teil der Vorbereitungen für den Gipfel der Vereinten Nationen für Ernährungssysteme am 23. September 2021.

Groundbreaking ceremony in Blomberg: Phoenix Contact builds an energy-efficient facility for machine building

Published

on

The new building will consolidate all the machine building units currently scattered around the Blomberg site, bringing them together in one place. The 18,500 m² site provides space for a production area, offices, and a canteen. In the future, 400 employees will work here. Energy efficiency was a top priority during the planning. Along with the high insulation standard of the building enclosure, heat recovery via a ventilation system and air compressors, and highly efficient plant technology, a photovoltaic system of more than 750 KWp will be installed on the roof. This way, a large portion of the energy demand can be covered by green electricity. The heart of the heating and cooling system is an ice storage tank that will provide the energy for the heat pumps, a technology that utilizes the high amount of energy released by freezing water in order to support heating. The ice that forms in this process can be used for low-cost cooling. “When the system is combined with solar collectors for the ice tank, we can store regenerative energy at a low temperature level without any losses,” Stührenberg explains. “This is yet another building block for increasing our share of self-generated energy from renewable sources.”

IJGlobal reconhece a Atlas Renewable Energy com os prêmios Acordo de Energia do Ano ESG de 2020 e Social ESG

Published

on

O prêmio Social ESG foi concedido ao programa da Atlas “Somos parte da mesma energia”, uma iniciativa social lançada no Brasil, Chile e México, e implementada durante a fase de construção dos projetos de energia solar que a empresa está atualmente desenvolvendo nesses países.

O programa visa capacitar a força de trabalho feminina local com treinamentos que permitirão às mulheres optar por trabalhos mais técnicos na construção dos projetos. Ao mesmo tempo, a Atlas mobilizou seus empreiteiros para, no processo de contratação, dar prioridade às mulheres que participaram dos treinamentos. Esta iniciativa se tornou o principal programa social da Atlas e está alinhada com os Objetivos de Desenvolvimento Sustentável da ONU (5 – Igualdade de gênero, 8 – Trabalho decente e crescimento econômico, 10 – Redução de desigualdades e 12 – Consumo e produção responsáveis).

Até hoje, aproximadamente 1.000 mulheres foram treinadas em diferentes áreas, como construção civil, carpintaria, saúde e segurança, montagem de módulos, eletricidade, entre outras. Isso nos permitiu aumentar dos habituais 2% para 15% a participação feminina na construção dos projetos.

O programa “Somos parte da mesma energia” deve ser implementado nos novos projetos da empresa para que mais mulheres possam se beneficiar desses treinamentos e encontrar novas oportunidades de carreira.

A Usina Solar Jacarandá no Brasil também foi reconhecida pela IJGlobal com o prêmio Negócio de Energia Solar do Ano (Américas) devido à implementação bem-sucedida do programa “Somos parte da mesma energia” durante a construção do projeto.

Durante esse período, mais de 214 mulheres foram treinadas em habilidades técnicas. Entre as mulheres treinadas, 123 foram contratadas para fazer parte da construção da Jacarandá. No total, 159 mulheres foram contratadas, o que representou 17% do trabalho total contratado na Jacarandá durante o pico das obras. O projeto também se concentrou em contratar grupos sub-representados, como a população afrodescendente no estado da Bahia, que formou a maior parte da força de trabalho, 85% e 83% de homens e de mulheres afrodescendentes, respectivamente.

“É uma honra que a IJGlobal tenha reconhecido nosso programa de força de trabalho feminina “Somos parte da mesma energia” e sua implementação no projeto de energia solar Jacarandá”, disse Maria José Cortes, diretora de ESG da Atlas Renewable Energy. “Criar e implementar este programa tem sido uma experiência incrível para todos nós da Atlas, ajudando a abrir uma porta para novas oportunidades para mulheres em áreas rurais na América Latina e mudando paradigmas. Estamos muito orgulhosos disso, mas sabemos que ainda há muito a ser feito em termos de D&I. Esperamos que este programa promova a base de práticas mais inclusivas em nosso setor e nas comunidades onde atuamos.”

Sobre a Atlas Renewable Energy
