Most comprehensive mapping of the UK’s food & drink carbon footprint ever shows pathway to 50% carbon reduction. Equivalent to 35% of the UK’s total emissions arise from producing and eating the country’s food & drink, including emissions overseas for imported food. Action on food systems by policymakers and the sector is fundamental to delivering the UK’s Net Zero ambitions and reducing our wider global footprint – food & drink is the hidden hero, says WRAP. UK work on GHG emissions could be the blueprint for international action.
