Nestlé CEO Paul Bulcke has underlined the company’s commitment to reducing food loss and waste by joining a new coalition, Champions 12.3, which will work to inspire action on this issue.

Champions 12.3 brings together CEOs, politicians, leaders from global institutions and civil society to accelerate progress towards the fulfilment of United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Target 12.3, which seeks to halve per capita food waste and reduce food losses by 2030.

“We are proud to be part of Champions 12.3. I am convinced that by working together, we can develop effective solutions to reduce food loss and waste, to help the world meet Target 12.3,” Mr Bulcke said.

“Bold action is what matters, and we are already committed to sending zero waste for disposal from all our sites by 2020. Such actions benefit society by supporting rural development, water conservation and food security, and help us ensure that our sourcing is more sustainable.”
