Food waste carbon footprint
Food wastage occurs at every stage, from the fields to the plate, and in the factories too. Enough food is produced to feed 1.5 times the whole human population. Yet, 690 million people – 8.9 % of the population – still suffer from hunger. Besides the considerable issue of inequality and the goal 2 “Zero Hunger” of the UN, this problem raises the question of that excess of food which ends in waste, of the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and of all the resources and energies mobilised to end in the bin.
