UNEP Food Waste Index Report 2024 - Launch Event


To mark the second annual International Day of Zero Waste, UNEP will launch its Food Waste Index Report 2024 on 27 March 2024. The report provides the latest global estimates on food waste, occurring at retail and consumer level. Addressing food waste is an important facet of embracing zero waste and tackling the climate crisis.


UNEP, as custodian of the SDG 12.3 food waste indicator, publishes a triennial report tracking country-level progress to halve food waste by 2030. First published in 2021, the initial report demonstrated that household food waste is a global challenge, not limited to high-income countries.  

Leading food waste experts will highlight the report’s findings and recommendations and a panel discussion will explore G20 action to deliver Sustainable Development Goal 12.3.
