The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations estimates that approximately one third of all food produced in the world is lost or wasted. At Tesco, we think it’s simply not right that good food goes to waste when one in nine people are going hungry each night. From an environmental perspective, food loss and waste is causing around 8% of all greenhouse gas emissions.
At a global level, Tesco’s CEO, Dave Lewis, chairs a coalition of leaders from government, businesses, international organisations, research institutions, and civil society called Champions 12.3. This group is dedicated to accelerating progress towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goal Target 12.3 to halve food waste by 2030.
