Estimates suggest that 8-10% of global greenhouse gas emissions are associated with food that is not consumed. The Food Waste Index Report, produced by UNEP, provides a methodology to measure food waste at household, food service and retail levels, and track progress towards Sustainable Development Goal 12.3.
Addressing food waste is critical to creating low-impact, healthy and resilient food systems which provide multi-faceted benefits to people and the planet. This report presents the most comprehensive food waste data collection, analysis and modelling to date. Countries using this methodology will generate strong evidence to guide a national strategy on food waste prevention.
