Today the world produces enough food to adequately feed all its inhabitants, yet 795 million people still suffer from hunger. In this paradoxical situation more than 1.3 billion tonnes of food is wasted in the world.
The unsustainability of the current food system implies a negative impact on the climate that translates into climate change. Increasing temperatures, changes in rainfall, erratic weather patterns and the prevalence of pests and diseases caused by climate change also threaten agricultural produc-tivity and therefore harm global food security.
Food sustainability, understood as the capacity of current food systems to minimise negative impacts on the environ-ment and to guarantee resources for future generations, is a necessary premise to eradicate malnutrition in the world.
At Nutrition Without Borders we believe that food systems must be committed to the climate, and that the use of food resources is of utmost importance for the fight against mal-nutrition. While developing countries do not have access to food resources, developed countries squander one-third of the world's food.
Our projects seek to eradicate malnutrition in the world, tak-ing into account the sustainability criteria of food systems and promoting a responsible use of the foods and resources available. In order to achieve missionary goals, the following actions are carried out:
Programmes to prevent and reduce food wastage
Programmes to promote food reutilisation
Awareness/communication campaigns on food wastage
Promotion of more sustainable food systems
We collaborate with more than 63food companies to promote more sustainable food systems.
We have created a pioneering protocol to reduce food wastage and pro-mote food reuse in the catering sector.
We have contributed to the reduction of CO2 emissions with more than 954tonnes in the framework of the project from the reduction of food waste.
