In June 2020, 40 key stakeholders from across the UK meat production and supply chain came together, facilitated by WRAP's Courtauld Commitment, to pledge to make the UK meat industry one of the most efficient and sustainable in the world. This summary highlights the areas of significant progress made and the areas that require greater focus.

Supporters of Meat in a Net Zero world are taking action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, protect natural assets like forests and water resources, reduce their own operational food waste, and help to halve the exorbitant amount of meat purchases we throw away at home. These actions will contribute towards existing national and global targets including the Courtauld Commitment 2030 and the NFU’s target of zero emissions for UK farming by 2040.

This document includes:

  • An outline of action areas and key points of progress against these.
  • A commentary on progress and further action needed by the Centre for Innovation Excellence in Livestock.
