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.
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.
