Belgian food industry continues its commitment to a sustainable future

Published: 13/03/2019

The Belgian food and drink federation (Fevia) has launched their third sustainability report. This report shows that the sector has reduced CO2 emissions by 26% since 1990, despite the fact that over the same period, production capacity has more than doubled. 170 companies participated in the Walloon and Flemish voluntary agreements. They all have a clear action plan that they regularly update. These companies must invest in energy saving measures, going much further than what they would do in a normal context.

Individual sectors are also taking concrete initiatives to reduce the CO2 impact of their product throughout the chain, such as the milk sector which has reduced the carbon footprint of Belgian milk by 26% between 2000 and 2015.
