Food, Drink Manufacturers Slash CO2 Emissions

UK food and drink manufacturers have reduced their carbon dioxide emissions by 35 percent against a 1990 baseline — five years ahead of the original target date of 2020.

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.
