EUPHA launches a report on Healthy and Sustainable diets for European countries

The European Public Health Association-EUPHA, a member of the JPI HDHL Stakeholder Advisory Board, has published a report on Healthy and Sustainable diets for European countries. callings for all European states to establish a statutory Sustainable Nutrition Task Force, that considers and includes the wider aspects of food. EUPHA is an international umbrella organisation for public health associations bringing together around 17,000 public health experts for professional exchange and collaboration throughout Europe. The report  promotes a greater alignment of health and sustainability messages on diet and nutrition. It’s targeted at European leaders operating in the fields of health and nutrition, agriculture, food safety, education, consumer affairs and environmental protection. The aim is to encourage a broader perspective on sustainable food and nutrition policy, to bring together the dual objectives of tackling the present burden of diet-related noncommunicable diseases with future priorities for public and planetary health. Sustainability is defined in the report as according to the concept of “sustainable development”, to include also the three pillars of economy, society, and environment. Efforts should be combined to improve the quality of diets and reduce the environmental impacts of the food industry. This is a challenge not only for the public health community, but also for the agricultural, food processing industry and consumers.
