FDF handbook

The Food & Drink Federation has launched a handbook to help food and drink producers on their journey to net zero.

The ‘Achieving Net Zero’ handbook outlines how the FDF and the food and drink sector can address these challenges, and provides practical guidance for manufacturers, particularly those at the early stages of developing their climate strategy.

COP26 in Glasgow comes at a pivotal time as the food and drink industry looks to address both the causes and consequences of climate change, ambitiously aiming to move towards net zero. FDF's handbook is intended to support and guide businesses to make even more crucial steps to reach their environmental goals.

Ian Wright, chief executive of the Food & Drink Federation, said: “The publication of this excellent handbook for food and drink manufacturers is a significant moment in our sector’s journey to net zero. The handbook will be an important tool for food and drink manufacturers - and others across the supply chain - striving to achieve net zero by 2040.

'This work demonstrates the huge value of ever stronger collaboration with all stakeholders across the farm-to-fork supply chain. Created and published in the slipstream of COP26, the ideas and actions outlined here provide an indispensable blueprint for food and drink businesses to deliver their net-zero ambitions.”
