Reducing food waste has been recognised as one of the most important global challenges of our time. Ireland, along with almost 200 other countries, has committed to tackle this problem by 2030.
This can only be done if all of us – individuals, organisations and businesses – take action.
The Food Waste Charter is a public expression of our commitment to achieve an Ireland where food is not wasted. By signing up, you pledge to take at least one action that will help reduce food waste. This action, regardless of how big or small, should be concrete and achievable.
By doing this, you will join other businesses and industry leaders from across the country in working together to reduce food waste.
READ THE CHARTER
Ireland’s Food Waste Charter was formally signed into place by Minister Denis Naughten in March 2017. Read the Charter to understand the commitment Ireland is making to reducing food waste.
DECIDE WHAT ACTION TO TAKE
The Charter asks that you take one action to reduce food waste within the first year of signing up. This action will be different for all. Here are a number of actions that other people have committed to. Think about how you want to reduce waste and make your pledge.
MAKE YOUR PLEDGE
Regardless of what kind of business or organisation you are involved with, there is always something that you can do to reduce food waste. Join us – sign the Charter today and let’s make a real reduction in Ireland’s food waste.
