Reducing food waste would have a greater impact on climate change mitigation than alternative energy sources, transportation efficiency, green construction, and other better-known solutions – plus it has the potential for significant investment returns. In the U.S. alone, 35% of all food goes unsold or uneaten, causing 4% of GHG emissions and costing the economy $408B a year. 

This session will introduce a framework and key resources to take action now. Learn how your company can contribute by adopting food waste reduction strategies.
