Targeting food waste at GSA
We are tackling food waste across the GSA.
Food waste represents nearly a third of household waste in Scotland and it is estimated that 30-50% of food is wasted worldwide before it reaches the human stomach.
When food is wasted, the embodied energy that helped get the food to our plates is also wasted which includes energy from farming, transport, storing and cooking. By wasting less food we can save on needless energy use which directly reduces carbon emissions.
