The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), launched by the United Nations in 2016, galvanised the drive toward more sustainable production and consumption of food. Goal 12 includes a target to halve per capita food waste by 2030. The private sector has been called upon to play a key role in meeting these goals.
ADAS has supported the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) as advisors to their sector-specific working groups. We continue to work with WRAP’s Courtauld Signatory companies to identify ways to reduce waste of resources.
We can support you with the following solutions:
We can assist in measuring and monitoring food surplus and waste using recognised methods (e.g. World Resources Institute’s Food Loss and Waste Standard and WRAP’s Food Waste Reduction Roadmap).
By developing meaningful targets, we can then help identify food waste hotspots and actions to address them (e.g. use of by-products).
Increasing redistribution to keep food in the human food chain
Where surplus is identified, we will highlight opportunities to find alternative markets for surplus. We can assist in setting up relationships with redistribution partners.
Engaging employees and your supply chain
We provide bespoke training and workshops to raise awareness and motivate action.
Reporting and communicating progress
We can develop both internal and external reports to update stakeholders on progress.
Contact Managing Director Sarah Wynn to see how ADAS can help you reach your food waste reduction goals.
