In an environment where concern about climate change is growing and becoming more relevant, companies want to know what the impact of their products is on the environment to correct it. The sum of forces between Alimentium and unpublished will allow that in a fast and simple way, the marks of the sector agroalimentario can know what footprint of carbon generate each one of his products. The agri-food sector is a dynamic and innovative sector and will also be proactive in the fight against climate change and sustainability, and the tool we will jointly develop unpublished and Alimentium comes to diagnose and facilitate decision-making, increasingly green decisions. Inèdit is a company specialized in the Circular Economy and the agri-food sector and with a lot of experience in calculating carbon footprints, while Alimentium works with more than 7,000 companies in the food sector with a digital platform to manage the data of all the products of easy and intuitive way. This union will result in a tool for all companies in the sector who wish to know the environmental impact of their actions (field management, food processing, transport, distribution and management) to change processes or materials and thus walk towards a greener future
In addition, the European Union is currently working to achieve standard scales for all companies, which make it clear what the carbon and ecological footprint is, and for the market to progressively displace those products with a greater associated environmental impact.
Pioneering legislative initiatives such as the Catalan law on climate change – already approved – say that 10% of the space of food packages will have to be reserved to put their carbon footprint.
Thus, in a climate emergency scenario such as the one we are experiencing, Alimenitum and inèdit join forces to achieve a more sustainable agri-food sector – already aware.
The agreement between Alimentium and unpublished enters into force in May 2020, and the tool is expected to be available by the last quarter of 2020.
