Food and drink companies achieve CO2 target five years early

The Food and Drink Federation (FDF) has released its Ambition 2025 Progress Report, highlighting progress in some areas, including food and drink companies achieving a 55 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions five years before the target was due to be reached.

Launched in 2016, the Ambition 2025 project aims to set achievable sustainability targets for food and drink companies to reach in order to work towards a thriving and sustainable UK food and drink industry.

Other notable achievements include the FDF’s work on water, where between 2007 and 2019 members reduced their absolute water consumption by more than one third (41.5 per cent) and the amount of water consumed per tonne of product was also reduced by 44.5 per cent in the same period.

Due to the successful work of members, FDF has now updated its ambitions, creating the Ambition 2025 Mid-Term Report.

The report also highlights the contribution FDF members have made to reducing food waste, including the progress made under the UK Food Waste Reduction Roadmap. In addition, there has been substantial engagement with the UK Government on the packaging policy reforms alongside our ongoing support for the work of the UK Plastics Pact.
