REFRESH has the objective to bring together different stakeholders from all stages of the production and supply chain and to lead them closer towards the goal of reducing food waste and loss. This will be implemented through effective measures, especially those that do not stem from legal necessities. The Framework for Action guides cooperation within the German Business Engagement Steering Committee (German National Platform).

By agreeing to the Framework for Action, the participants agree to an unbinding self-commitment to implement measures throughout the most relevant stages of the production and supply chain in order to minimize food waste and food loss. Sanction mechanisms do not exist.
 
By validating the Framework for Action, the signatories / participants from economic, civil, scientific and political spheres will contribute to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goal 12.3, within their respective areas of
accountability, of halving the amount of food waste and loss per capita along production and supply chains by 2030.

The FA is open for all organizations who would like to contribute to this goal. If you would like to take an active role in the project, please contact Patrik Eisenhauer (Patrik.eisenhauer@scp-centre.org).

The Framwork for Action is available for download in English and German.
