Food Delivery Companies for Reducing Single-Use Plastics

Food and Agriculture

About

Forum for the Future - a global sustainability non-profit, and foodpanda - leading mobile food delivery service, are embarking on a joint partnership to eliminate single-use plastic waste from the food delivery ecosystem in Asia. Working together with a number of food and beverage companies, the partnership aims to develop a shared protocol for reducing the use of single-use plastics, which food delivery companies and their food and beverage partners can easily adopt within their operations. In designing the plastic waste reduction protocol, Forum for the Future will bring its rich experience in catalysing system-wide transformational change and developing systemic plastic reduction strategies with partners in various industries worldwide – including the influential #OneLess movement to reduce the use of single-use plastic water bottles in the city of London. The protocol will be tested in two South-East Asia markets to help ensure that it is designed for easy adoption across all food delivery platforms.
