DECO shares sustainability tips and invites you to assess your carbon footprint – Executive Digest

On World Environment Day, celebrated this Wednesday, DECO recommends consumption habits that contribute to a healthier planet: choosing responsibly and consciously, organically produced foods, reusing and repairing products instead of buying new, and reducing food waste.

In 2024, the theme of Environment Day will be land restoration, combating desertification and drought. Therefore, DECO highlights the importance of facing these challenges and invites all citizens to join the #GeraçãoRestauração.

To support Portuguese consumers in changing their consumption habits, DECO, together with companies from seven other European countries, developed a lifestyle test. It’s a free tool that helps users calculate their carbon footprint and create a personalized action plan to make their lifestyle more sustainable.

Join DECO to celebrate World Environment Day.

More than 230,000 European citizens have already used the lifestyle test to assess and improve their carbon footprint. In Portugal, the test is increasingly accessible to citizens, especially in the Minho, Centro, Ribejo and Osté regions, areas with DECO regional structures.

We also invite municipalities, universities, companies, NGOs and other organizations to join the Lifestyle Test. This tool allows you to understand the carbon footprint of your target audience and define strategies to measure and improve the region’s sustainability.

Take part in this change and contribute to a better future with our tips:

• Try to prepare food without meat and fish. They are usually very economical, offer a variety of flavors and contain all the nutrients needed for a healthy diet.

• Choose organically produced foods: They contain less fertilizers, pesticides and antibiotics, which is good for nature, body and mind.

• Choose local foods: they are fresh and support local and regional production.

• Make quick and tasty meals from leftovers: 1/3 of our food goes to waste, but it can be turned into fresh foods.

• Consider buying used items: Whether it’s clothes, electronics or decor, almost anything can be bought at physical or digital used stores.

• Invest in repairs and avoid buying a new product only for non-repairable cases
