Monitoring tools

In order to provide strategies to achieve zero GHG food chain industry by 2050, the project is providing with tools to enable the mapping of the different available initiatives and mechanisms at both EU and national level. Mapping consists of looking at the current consumer and industry initiatives, financial mechanisms, food standards, and policies & regulations for decarbonization.

The initiatives are categorised by food sector and supply chain stage. These are listed in the following excel file where information is collected in a systematic way, in order to be coded at a second stage.

Keep tuned !

Information about the emissions database of food chain developed within the project for case study countries for 1990 and 2020 (October 2023), and projected emissions for 2030 and 2050 (September 2025) will be included as soon as these tasks are completed.

Information about the technological roadmaps for the different stages of the supply chain and energy roadmaps, financial requirements and business models to reduce emissions by 50% by 2050, barriers for reducing energy and carbon emissions of food chain will be also included as soon as these are completed (regular feedings starting from October 2022 to September 2025).

Food Supply Chain optimisation tool

In order to help reaching zero GHG emissions of food chain industry, a web tool able to simulate an entire food supply chain from farm to fork is developed within the project. The calculation evaluates the greenhouse gas emissions at each stage of the supply chain and gives detailed metrics like quality criteria indicators for products, energy consumption and equivalent CO2 emissions.

By using this tool, it is possible for business, researchers and individuals to analyze “what-if” scenarios to make informed decisions and optimize supply chain sustainability. The user can tailor the simulation to match a specific food supply chain, compare the environmental impact of diverse scenarios side by side to identify the most sustainable options, potential emission reduction strategies and best practices to minimize the carbon footprint of a food supply chain.

This web tool is under development, but can be tested at its early stage. Feedback will be highly appreciated.
