Food and drink manufacturers to reduce emissions by 55% in 10 years

The Food and Drink Federation has pledged to reduce the carbon emissions of manufacturers in the industry by 55% by 2025.

The group, which has hailed its previous sustainability efforts, has issued a set of commitments that industry plans to follow to decrease its carbon footprint even further.

As well as the proposed 55% reduction, which is fully in line with wider government targets, members of the federation have committed to a cut in supply chain waste of 3.2%. The group also maintains a commitment to send absolutely no food and packaging waste to landfill from members’ own direct operations from 2016 and beyond.

Furthermore, more emphasis on more sustainable packaging and reducing the amount of water used in manufacturing is included in the pledges.

Helen Munday, chief scientific officer at the Food and Drink Federation, says: “Now, having made great progress across a range of areas, including massive CO2 emission and water use reductions, we’ve looked again at what more we can deliver, engaging with more companies within our sector and beyond. The partnership approach has proven most effective at engaging the diverse parts of the UK food chain.”
