About the project
PLAN’EAT is a Horizon Europe project that seeks the development of innovative, effective tools and strategies to facilitate the transition towards healthy and sustainable dietary behaviour in Europe. In a consortium of 24 European partners, TMG leads the work on True Cost Accounting (TCA) to analyse the environmental, health and social impacts of European diets and their associated hidden costs. TCA uses environmental and social life cycle assessments (LCA) and economic valuation to enable more holistic decision making. As part of the project, TMG will conduct three TCA case studies of different European dietary patterns. Based on the findings, recommendations for the transition to sustainable, healthy and fair diets will be developed.
