Strategies to achieve economic and environmental gains by reducing food waste

WRAP - the UK’s Waste and Resources Action Programme has published a new report entitled 'Strategies to achieve economic and environmental gains by reducing food waste', which argues that reducing food waste worldwide can make a significant contribution to tackling climate change while also saving money. Wrap puts the total value of global consumer food waste at more than US$400 billion per year. The report says that globally as much as £194bn could be saved by reducing food waste by 2030.

WRAP’s findings contributed to Better Growth, Better Climate: The New Climate Economy Report, released in 2014 by the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate.
