3. Reducing food waste, including cooked food waste


Food production requires water, energy and land. It reduces space for nature and generates a range of greenhouse gases. Unlike some waste products food waste cannot be re-used or recycled. If discarded in landfill sites food waste decomposes and creates methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. Waste needs to be minimised.
