Reducing Wasted Food

The West Coast Voluntary Agreement to Implement Sustainable Development Goal 12.3

The Pacific Coast Collaborative is calling on food retailers and their supply chain partners—with support from local, state and provincial governments– to join the West Coast Voluntary Agreement to Reduce Wasted Food to reduce and prevent wasted food by 50% by 2030 and to implement existing commitments made under UN Sustainable Development Goals 12.3 and Champions 2030.

 

Highlights

 

Profit Potential & Financial Benefit

Food waste costs the US $218 billion dollars each year. A study of UK Signatories found a £14 return on investment for every £1 invested in food waste reduction through regional collaboration.

Simplicity and Synergy

Use one platform to take action and move towards the SDG 12.3 target laid out by the PCC, WWF, WRI, and ReFED. Submit data through one universal form.

Public-Private Partnership

Work directly with public sector government partners in your region to create joint solutions at a local, state, and regional level.

Community Impact

42 million Americans and 4 million Canadians are food insecure. Rescuing food allows you to make a positive impact on your community and feed those in need.

Climate Connection

Food waste is one of the largest contributors to global warming. 2.6% of all U.S. and Canadian greenhouse gas emissions come from food loss and waste.
