The index does not factor in food loss which differs from food waste in that it occurs during production, storage or processing and never reaches the consumer.

"Objectives are set at the European level to give room for national ambitions, so governments can decide their ambitions, and the Commission can encapsulate them in a European frame. The Commission can then step in if national plans are not respected," Jean-Michel Glachant, director of the Florence School of Regulation (FSR), told DW. Glachant says that EU institutions are called upon to increase fair competition in the energy sector, … [Read more...] about EU energy investments: Will 2021 be decisive?
