Zero Waste Scotland | Scotland Food & Drink official ambassador for the Resource Efficiency Pledge

 

Zero Waste Scotland

The Resource Efficiency Pledge is led by Resource Efficient Scotland, a programme of ACR+ member Zero Waste Scotland, and works with businesses to help them reduce running costs and carbon emissions. Scotland Food & Drink is the latest organisation to become an official ambassador for the Resource Efficiency Pledge.

By making the pledge, businesses can demonstrate their environmental responsibility, choosing a number of actions that will help save money and reduce their use of energy, water and raw materials. As an ambassador, Scotland Food & Drink will spread the resource efficiency message to their 350 member organisations and encourage them to follow suit by making a pledge.

James Withers, Chief Executive of Scotland Food & Drink comments: “A resource efficient approach to business for both primary producers and food and drink manufacturers not only helps to protect our natural resources and improve productivity, it also reinforces the provenance and reputation of Scottish products.”

Zero Waste Scotland’s work to drive resource efficiency in the food and drink sector is helping to support the Scottish Government’s Good Food Nation policy.
