Food Waste Reduction for Businesses

Scientists say we have just a decade to avoid a catastrophic climate crisis. [1]

Your staff are probably talking about the ‘Blue Planet effect’ around the coffee machine [2] and are awake at night worrying about the future of the planet for their children and grandchildren.

Maybe you are too.

Food Waste Contributes to Climate Change

Did you know that if food waste were a country, it would be the third largest emitter of greenhouse gas emissions, after the US and China? [3]

Or that a staggering 70% of food waste is generated in the home? [4]

All this sounds terrible, but actually it’s good – because it means we can do something about it.

Goals to Reduce Global Food Waste

In the sustainable development goals, the UN’s target is to halve per capita food waste by 2030. [5] The Earthshot site have a vision that by 2030 we live in a world where nothing goes to waste – just like nature. [6]

And the good news is, you can help make this vision a reality.

Gain More Customers and Improve Staff Loyalty

Not only will it help protect our future, but you’ll get more loyal customers and employees. According to research, 59% of consumers said they expect companies to make a stand on climate and environmental issues [7] and Forbes tell us that “65% of employees would seriously consider leaving their job if their company harmed the environment”. [8]

Go one step better than NOT harming the environment. Do something PRO-ACTIVE to support it.

Inspire Your Staff

We give inspiring and fun talks to your staff to help them connect the dots between food waste and climate change. They’ll get clear on WHY it’s so important we reduce our food waste. They will be inspired and motivated to take action.

Our experience shows that once your staff care about the environment at home, they automatically bring that passion to the workplace. In essence, they become your very own sustainable champions; so you can not only protect the planet, but your triple bottom line too.

Be Part of the Solution

With a massive 80 per cent of consumers prepared to stop using your products and services if your response to an issue does not support their personal views, you can’t afford to have brand and reputation divided. Failure to be authentic in your sustainability goals not only risks you isolating your audience but becoming obsolete compared to your competitors. [9]

Contact us today to book a talk or pop up clinic – in person or via video conferencing.

Together we can do this!
