Around a third of all food is lost or wasted between the farm and plate, resulting in approximately 8% of annual greenhouse gas emissions. In September, Champions 12.3 – the coalition of executives committed to helping the world achieve a 50% reduction in food loss and waste by 2030 – issued a three-point call to action in order to achieve this aim. This webinar will dive into the call to action and, in particular, its focus on connecting food loss and waste reduction with climate mitigation strategies.

Attendees will hear about (1) the scope of food loss and waste worldwide, (2) what actions countries should be focused on, and (3) what actions companies can take. This event is a pre-session to the UN Food Systems Summit, scheduled for next year.
