How business can tackle food waste more effectively: The potential climate/efficiency gains

Clock icon 09:00 - 09:45
Over a third of all food that's produced in the world never reaches a plate. It's either damaged in transit or wasted by consumers in wealthier countries, who typically buy too much and throw away the excess. This works out to roughly 1.3 billion tonnes of food, worth nearly $1 trillion at retail prices, wasted on an annual basis. 
In this session, we’ll assess the role of business and discuss what’s being done tackle food waste more effectively.
  • Examples of success: Hear from companies that have made solid progress, about HOW they did it
  • Pre-competitive collaboration groups that work: What makes them tick, and why
  • Can business stay ahead of legislation by showing they can lead the way?
