Webinar & New Publications on Food Loss and Waste Measurement Released

9 Mar 2019

On March 7th, the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) issued a technical report and practical guide on food loss and waste measurement.

  • "Why and How to Measure Food Loss and Waste: A Practical Guide" is an easy-to-use tool for businesses to apply in measuring the quantity of food wasted in their process activities. This new tool has the power to alter an organization's practices, reducing operational costs while also helping to reduce the environmental impacts of our food production system.
  • The technical report, "Quantifying Food Loss and Waste and Its Impacts," that was released along with the guide, provides methods to quantify food loss and waste and food surplus across the supply chain, as well as tools to estimate the environmental, financial and social impacts of food loss and waste.

Additionally, World Resources Institute will be hosting a webinar on March 28th at 11:00 am Eastern time to share more information on how to measure food loss and waste using the practical guide. You can register for that webinar here:  https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/2908721025152595724.
