Food, Drink Manufacturers Slash CO2 Emissions
The Food and Drink Federation report says its members saw CO2 emissions fall by 664,000 metric tons since the launch of the Five-fold Environmental Ambition in 2007.
In addition to achieving the CO2 target, the industry has reduced water use by 15.6 percent and delivered a 4.5 percent reduction in the carbon impact of packaging against the 2015 zero increase target of the UK Waste and Resources Action Programme Courtauld Commitment, a voluntary pledge to reduce packaging and waste.
FDF members have also reduced food and packaging waste sent to landfill to just 3 percent and are now focusing on further reducing mixed waste to reach the zero waste to landfill target by the end of this year.
