UK supermarket Tesco and wildlife NGO WWF have set up a four-year partnership to work on reducing the environmental impacts of food. They aim to halve the environmental impact of the average UK shopping basket, according to a metric that they will develop.
The partnership will work in three key areas:
- Helping customers eat more sustainable diets,
- Restoring nature in food production, and
- Eliminating food and packaging waste from the sector.
