For companies committed to helping the environment, reducing food waste is the clear place to start

As the chief executive of Canada's largest food rescue charity, I've noticed an important change in the way that executives and donors think about their work with us. It used to be that donations or involvement with a charity such as Second Harvest, focused on reducing food waste, was a nicety. Today, it's a necessity.
Some organizations have made ambitious environmental commitments and are looking for a place to start making progress. Food waste is not always an immediately obvious choice - many think first about reducing electricity consumption, or improving consumer packaging. But reducing food waste can be a crucial way to help the environment and cut costs.
