Project - Low-CARBON FOODprint

Description


Description (EN): In France, food waste accounts for approximately 400€/year/household (France Nature Environment 2013), it’s £585 in England (UK WRAP 2016). A menu with meat or fish and dairy products emits about 2.5kg of CO2 compared to a vegetarian menu with an impact of between 0.5kg and 1kg of Green House Emissions (ADEME Basse-Normandie 2013). Reduced waste, the reduced consumption of animal products and more local purchasing are all effective ways of reducing carbon footprint. COO-L Food’s objective is the deliverable reduction of 153t of CO2 emissions from 1,300 households in the Channel area over 2 years (C1.1). This corresponds, on average, to a 20% reduction in a households food-related emissions; resulting in potential financial savings of €432/beneficiary (C2.2). The 3 partners, ATB, PECT & CFF, will unite to create: - 1 digital Meter tool (WP1) to quantify food commitments made by the 1,300 beneficiary households in carbon and financial gains. - 1 transfer kit to guide ambassadors (interest groups including NGOs, public authorities) including the role they have in using and promoting the tool for their own targets (WP2). - 1 crossChannel COO-L FOOD Committee to exchange best practices and expertise, to deploy the tool and ensure its sustainability beyond the project (WP3). In 2016 a prototype of the Meter was developed and tested by ATB, the project leader. Calculating the ecological footprint (in square meter) and the financial gain (in €), it recorded the impact of commitments such as "eating several vegetarian meals/week". ATB will bring its expertise in digital technologies and accompanying transitions to the project. PECT has been working on reducing CO2 emissions in PETERBOROUGH area for over 25 years. CFF will contribute with their long lasting experience on food waste management and the renown of the Jamie Olivers Fifteen Cornwall restaurant. The partnership will be based on the complementary expertise of the 3 key partners and 3 associated partners: InterBio Normandie and Collectif des Festivals Engagés (FR), Brighton & Hove Food Partnership (UK). It concerns: - sector expertise (food, environment, low carbon). - geographical expertise. - support of various target groups. The associated partners will contribute to the design of the Meter tool and will participate in the crossChannel Committee. Compared to existing tools, the COO-L FOOD Meter is a complete and innovative tool that: - integrates a calculation of the impact of the carbon footprint and financial gains of food changes at individual and collective levels. - evaluates potential and real gains, providing simple and concrete commitments to be taken daily. - offers a personalised accompaniment of households. - responds to a growing demand for figures by local authorities and sustainable education network (societal challenges and the good use of public finances,...).
Description: Le gaspillage alimentaire représente en France environ 400€/an/ménage (France Nature Environnement 2013), £585 en Angleterre (UK WRAP 2016). Un menu avec viande ou poisson et produits laitiers émet environ 2,5kg de CO2 quand un menu végétarien a un impact entre 0,5 et 1kg d´émissions de GES (ADEME Basse-Normandie 2013). Moins gaspiller, consommer moins de produits animaux, acheter plus local sont autant d´enjeux communs pour réduire l´empreinte carbone. L´objectif de COO-L FOOD est une baisse réelle des émissions de CO2 de 1300 ménages de la zone Manche, pour un total de 153t sur 2 ans (C1.1). Cela correspond en moyenne à une réduction de 20% des émissions liées à l´alimentation d´un ménage et permettra des économies financières potentielles de 432€/bénéficiaire (C2.2). Les 3 partenaires, ATB, PECT et CFF, s´unissent pour créer : -1 outil numérique Compteur (MT1) permettant de chiffrer en gains carbone et financiers les engagements alimentaires pris par les 1300 ménages bénéficiaires. -1 kit de transfert pour accompagner des ambassadeurs (Groupes d´intérêts, dont ONG, pouvoirs publics) dont le rôle est d´utiliser et promouvoir l´outil sur leurs propres cibles (MT2). -1 Comité transManche COO-L FOOD pour échanger les bonnes pratiques et expertises, déployer l´outil et assurer sa pérénnité au-delà du projet (MT3). ATB, chef de file, a réalisé et testé en 2016, un prototype du Compteur calculant l´empreinte écologique (en m2) et financière (en €) d´engagements types "faire plusieurs repas végétariens/semaine". ATB apportera son savoir-faire dans les technologies numériques et l´accompagnement des transitions. PECT travaille sur la réduction du CO2 à Peterborough depuis 25 ans. CFF contribuera avec son expertise sur la gestion du gaspillage alimentaire et la notoriété du restaurant Fifteen Cornwall de Jamie Oliver. Le partenariat s´appuiera sur l´expertise complémentaire des 3 partenaires principaux et des 3 partenaires associés : InterBio Normandie et le Collectif des Festivals Engagés (FR), Brighton & Hove Food Partnership (UK) pour leur expertise sectorielle (alimentation, environnement, carbone), leur connaissance territoriale, l´accompagnement de cibles différentes. Les partenaires associés prendront part à la conception et aux tests du Compteur et au Comité transManche. Comparé aux outils existants, le Compteur est un outil complet et innovant qui: - intègre un calcul d´impact de l´empreinte carbone et de gains financiers des changements alimentaires aux niveaux individuel et collectif. - évalue les gains potentiels et les gains réels d´engagements simples et concrets à prendre au quotidien. - propose un suivi personnalisé des ménages. - répond à une demande croissante de données chiffrées des collectivités et structures d´éducation (enjeux sociétaux, bon usage des finances publiques...).
Expected Outputs (EN): Our 3 main expected results (calculations in C.1.1 and C.2.2): 1. 1,300 beneficiaries (people committed within households) 2. Lower CO2 emissions by 153t thanks to a low-carbon product: the digital Meter tool measures the CO2 emission promised & achieved gains of commitments taken by beneficiaries. 3. A potential average saving of 432 € / beneficiary, allowing a neutral cost to be achieved for the project.
Expected Outputs: Nos 3 résultats principaux attendus (calculs en C.1.1 et C.2.2) : 1. 1300 bénéficiaires (personnes engagées au sein des ménages) 2. Une réduction de 153t d'émissions de CO2 grâce à un produit bas-carbone : cet outil numérique Compteur mesure les gains promis et réalisés d'émissions de CO2 des engagements pris par les bénéficiaires. 3. Une économie financière moyenne potentielle de 432€ / bénéficiaire, permettant d'atteindre un coût neutre pour le projet.
