On 25th August, ESSNA’s Vice Chair Claudia Mucciardi participated in the online event “Plant-based nutrition: sustainability, political strategies, consumers’ lifestyles” organised by Vitafoods Insights. Claudia explained the benefits that plant-based sports nutrition products bring to sportspeople and delved into the challenges associated with a plant-based sports nutrition diet. Claudia also discussed ESSNA’s “Sustainability Pledge: Lifting the planet” and showed the importance of the initiative for the plant-based sector as well as its crucial role in the context of the shift towards more sustainable food systems. 

Launched in May 2022, ESSNA’s Sustainability Pledge aims to boost the industry’s transition to sustainability, taking a holistic approach, supporting not only environmental protection but also the local communities which supply chains interact with.
