Quadro legislativo para sistemas alimentares sustentáveis

Opinion Number: CDR 5930/2022
Rapporteur: SCHAUVLIEGE Joke
Commission: NAT
Status: Adopted
Date: 25/05/2023

 calls on the European Commission to ensure that horizontal and sectoral policies linked to food and food systems are in line with the objectives and targets set by the future FSFS, the farm-to-fork strategy, the biodiversity strategy and zero pollution targets, with proper evaluation and regular monitoring in place;

 urges EU, national, local and regional authorities to ensure that sustainability is mainstreamed in all food-related policies. The framework law should look into clarifying responsibilities for all food system actors by setting up multi-level cooperation, engaging participation at EU, Member State, regional and local level.

 reiterates its call to establish a multi-stakeholder platform on sustainable food systems, involving the European Committee of the Regions together with other relevant stakeholders and civil society, thus creating a supporting network that would facilitate the transition to more sustainable food systems for European regions and cities while taking into account regional differences and areas' specialisations and traditions;

 reiterates its call to eliminate existing constraints within its public procurement rules to apply sustainability criteria. EU competition legislation prohibits territorial preferences (such as local foods) being specified in public purchasing contracts.
