Motion text

That this House recognises the continuing progress being made by member companies of the Food and Drink Federation (FDF) in reducing the environmental impact of their operations, as set out in the second annual report highlighting achievements under the FDF's Fivefold Environmental Ambition; notes in particular the one million tonnes of carbon already saved compared to the 1990 baseline and the clear trajectory towards further substantial savings in future, vital in the context of the Copenhagen Climate Change negotiations, together with the efforts being made to increase efficiency in the use of water, eliminate waste to landfill, reduce packaging and improve transport performance; and welcomes the leadership being shown in demonstrating that good environmental practice makes good business sense and the contribution this makes to maintaining a competitive manufacturing base in the UK to help meet the challenges of food security and provide a platform for skilled employment and innovation in a sector of key importance to the economy.
