The Courtauld Commitment is a public-private partnership which has established a voluntary agreement about reducing food waste in the UK by 20% and reducing the water use through the entire supply chain. The partnership builds on voluntary commitments as a way to achieve the SDGs and on the approach “target, measure, act”. Signatories will work together to identify new actions and opportunities to save resources, which can be shared across the entire supply chain, to make the whole system more sustainable and resilient to supply chain disruptions. Signatories also commit to implementing changes, measuring the benefits, and helping other businesses and people to realize savings.
Examples of partners: Nestlé, Arla, Tesco, Heineken, Unilever, WWF, LIDL
