Zero Food Waste

The food industry is one of the largest sources of CO2-emission. Despite that, a third of all food is discarded, which would make food waste the third largest CO2-contributor nation if it was a country.

In response, the Global Shapers Stockholm Hub is involving local stakeholders from policy, the municipality and business to discuss possible ways to act. The Food Waste project is creating incentives to make restaurants and hotels to reduce their waste. For example, by partnering with existing startups in the local Stockholm startup ecosystem, aiming to reduce food waste. By establishing synergies among different actors the Hub is aiming to contribute to the reduction of large scale food waste.
