The first step in reducing food loss
Public reporting is widely recognised as both the trigger for rapid action internally within a retailer or manufacturer, and the key to building consumer trust and engagement on the issue. Increased transparency and public reporting of data are essential to driving progress towards reducing food waste and achieving SDG 12.3. The Food Waste and Loss Standard provides requirements and guidance for quantifying and reporting on the weight of food and/or associated inedible parts removed from the food supply chain, in a consistent manner.
As part of the Coalition’s decisive objective to facilitate public reporting across leading initiatives in an aligned guidance with Champions 12.3, a harmonised reporting template was developed in collaboration with WRAP and WRI. The tool is available to all CGF members via the Data Capture Sheet, hosted on WRAP’s website. The Coalition’s objective is for all its members to report publicly by December 2021.
