Global Roadmap for Food Waste Reduction in the Tourism Sector

  • Published on December 9, 2022

This Global Roadmap for Food Waste Reduction provides a consistent framework to accelerate food waste reduction in tourism through prevention, redistribution and diversion from landfill (circulation/valorization). It  highlights best practice and practical guidance for the sector to scale up action.


The Roadmap sets out how the tourism sector can contribute to the achievement of SDG 12.3 and support the Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism by reducing the emissions associated with food waste.

The Roadmap encourages and provides recommendations for tourism stakeholders to:

  • Target: Set the ambition by identifying a food waste reduction target;
  • Measure: Measure in a consistent way to be able to track progress;
  • Act: Take action to reduce their own food waste, work in partnership with suppliers and help guests reduce their food waste; and
  • Report: Disclose progress, showcase successes, share learnings and challenges with other stakeholders to trigger changes at scale.
