Tools, Best Practices and Recommendations to Reduce Consumer Food Waste – A Compendium

Food waste is a pressing issue that has significant environmental, social, and economic consequences. In line with its commitment of halving food waste by 2030, the European Union (EU) has implemented an extensive action plan to tackle this problem. In the EU, and many other parts of the world, most food waste occurs at the consumption stage. In order to tackle this hotspot of food waste generation, the European Consumer Food Waste Forum (ECFWF) – a pilot project involving experts from diverse backgrounds – has identified six intervention types to reduce consumer food waste, as well as recommendations for key players. The compendium shows the main findings of this work, emphasising the importance of taking a systemic approach when targeting food waste reduction at the consumer level.


Call for Collaboration

The CSCP Launches the co-do! lab to Make Transformation Toward Sustainability Happen Now!

For 17 years, the CSCP has been collaborating with businesses, policy makers, partner organisations, and civil society to increase the impact in areas that are important for the transition to a regenerative future. The CSCP has launched its brainchild, the co-do lab, born out of the urgency to radically scale up our efforts in transforming businesses, municipalities and cities. The co-do lab, is a Wuppertal-based do tank that runs as a social business and aims to support organisations to accelerate transformation towards greater sustainability.

"CSCP introduced us the concept of life cycle assessment. This was the much wider and comprehensive scope as compared to our earlier services. Working with CSCP also strengthened us on the concept and practices of sustainable consumption and production. These two value additions by CSCP enable our professionals to offer higher order of services and solutions to the industries in Pakistan."
