Being sustainable is good for you and the planet

Being sustainable is good
for you and the planet

PIÚINFORMA Association is actively involved in the process of transformation and conversion, in which the entire agri-food chain is a protagonist, with the aim of achieving climate neutrality by 2050. Joining our community means sharing these and the following values through concrete commitments to achieve shared goals. A collective responsibility for the future of our planet.

There are 14 out of 17 Sustainable Development Goals, as defined in the United Nations 2030 Agenda (SDG), which concern food. They are part of the global action plans necessary to develop and achieve environmental, social, economic and institutional objectives. Food is an essential component to achieve these goals. PIÚINFORMA Association wants to be an accelerator of this necessary conversion of the food system, applying the cardinal principles of the circular economy. An essential transformation for human beings to become a dynamic reality in the ecosystem.

Areas of our daily lives where our choices make the difference

Salute pubblica

PUBLIC HEALTH

In Italy, health is a constitutionally guaranteed asset and a right for all. Food plays a key role in the physical, mental and social well-being of individuals and communities. Dealing with it more effectively is a duty that the State and public administrations can no longer shirk.

PREVENTION AND FOOD

Prevention in food has become necessary since humans discovered how to modify and transform raw materials. and their natural growth and maturation. All this was not necessary, in natural foods nutrients have always been present naturally.

SPORT AND WELLNESS

Sport has a positive impact on our minds, as well as on our physique. The benefits of sports activity allow the body to remain healthy and efficient for longer, delaying the degeneration of muscles, joints and organic structures.

SOCIAL NUTRITION

A social diet passes through a simple reduction of the food processing and distribution chain. In addition, it benefits companies in their own territory where they can often turn. The result is an economic advantage and a benefit in terms of reducing environmental impact.

WASTE BECOMES A RESOURCE

Waste was originally a raw material and, as such, must go back to being in order to give new life to other products. All this is possible by separating them as much as possible, thus facilitating their subsequent collection and regeneration. A new life now awaits our old rejection, now a resource.

OUR PROGRAMMES TO INFORM

We plan information meetings directly to institutions and companies by agreeing and planning our activities with the competent offices. We organize themed events and days with debates and discussions related to human and environmental health. You can make informed choices if properly informed.

ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT

Knowing the impact of the food we consume allows us to understand its origin and often also the quality. Raw materials, processing, distribution, consumption and the waste chain are evaluated. Only if you know your footprint, can you reduce it for a zero-emission future!

SUSTAINABLE TOURISM

More and more people are looking for places of tourism and leisure that favor sustainable services with low environmental impact. Again, food enters with a stretched leg, from food supply to reception services to the correct separation of waste and much more.

SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES

A sustainable community is made up of people who share the same ecologic goals. Everyone leads a harmonious and environmentally friendly lifestyle. The commitment of the community is, to use renewable energies, seasonal and local food, to achieve energy and food autonomy.

RESPONSIBLE PRODUCTION

Producing sustainable food is not a new frontier of corporate social responsibility, but part of it.  It implies a different approach in selection and production methodologies used to date. A company must be directly responsible for its products and services placed on the market.

CLIMATE CHANGE

Humanity has always identified the climate change that has manifested itself throughout its history due to the melting of ice. But it is not only this: intensive farming and cultivation, the use of fossil energy, unmanaged waste and many other elements are the causes.

ENVIRONMENT AND NATURE

Environment and nature mean all living and non-living things that occur naturally, which includes in this case not artificial. Elements that are part of our planet and ecosystem. This millenary balance that man has managed to break and now he has to rebuild.

How much water it needs to...

WATER FOR ALL

Drinking water is a natural right of the human being, without discrimination. It must have sufficient, safe and acceptable access to it and in sufficient quantities for personal and domestic use; if mesh and micro filtered it is a real alternative to water bottled in both PET and glass.

FOOD WASTE

Food waste is the phenomenon of still good food loss, which occurs throughout the food production and consumption chain. It is estimated that, every year around the world, a third of all food produced for human consumption is wasted and is unfortunately a growing figure.

INTEGRATED AGRICULTURE

The raw materials produced by biodynamic and local agriculture suffer from the great disinterest of the food industry. The reason is simple, the price tout court without considering the environmental cost. Choices in stark contrast to the dictates of the circular economy and sustainability.
