Reducing food loss and waste is an important issue in the U.S. and around the world. In support of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal 12.3, which establishes a target to halve food waste and reduce food loss by 2030, the G7 countries have committed to facilitate the exchange of best practices and lessons learned in reducing food waste as part of the G7 Alliance on Resource Efficiency. EPA is kicking off the U.S. contribution to this effort with a webinar highlighting the actions of three United States Food Loss and Waste 2030 Champions that are leading the way in helping the U.S. reach its 50% food loss and waste reduction goal. Speakers from each company will share best practices, tools, and resources they have created to prevent food from going to waste, and will address how shifts in company culture have changed operations as well as the critical role measurement of food waste plays in achieving their goals.
The webinar will feature presentations from:
