Feedback: Evidence and Recommendations to Committee on Climate Change

Feedback welcome the CCC’s modelling of a 50% reduction in food waste by 2030. We recommend that the CCC use the following means of measuring the 50% per capita food waste reduction target, as a more ambitious scenario:
• 50% reduction of edible and inedible food waste (in practice mainly achieved through a
greater than 50% reduction in edible food waste)
• 50% reduction by 2030 against a 2015 baseline (there is a strong rationale for 2015 as
the baseline year, as the founding year of the SDGs, including SDG 12.3, which sets the
food waste reduction target)
• 50% reduction of food waste from farm to fork
• Additional prevention of edible surplus food currently sent to animal feed
