The UK’s Food and Drink Federation has released its 2017 progress report, which tracks the progress of its members in the food and drink industry towards meeting its Ambition 2025 environmental goals.
The report shows that, based on those who responded to surveys, FDF members have reduced CO2 emissions from energy use in manufacturing operations by 51% since 1990, sent less than 0.1% of food and packaging waste to landfill in 2015, reduced water consumption by 35.8% between 2007 and 2016, reduced water consumption per tonne of product by 36.6% and reduced CO2 equivalent emissions by 7% per vehicle km between 2010 and 2015. The FDF has also created the Sustainability Resource Hub and helped to create the Natural Capital Protocol and Food Sector Guide for the Natural Capital Coalition.
