The Product Sustainability Forum (PSF) is a collaboration of organisations made up of grocery retailers and suppliers, academics, NGOs and UK Government representatives.
It provides a platform for these organisations to work together to measure, improve and communicate the environmental performance of the grocery products. WRAP provides the Secretariat for the forum.
Environmental impact of products
Many companies have already started measuring the environmental performance of products. The PSF was established to lead, co-ordinate and progress existing efforts, alongside similar initiatives being undertaken around the world so that industry, Governments and others have evidence to help them prioritise which products to focus their efforts on.
WRAP is already working with the grocery sector via the Courtauld Commitment. As this voluntary agreement has evolved, the members and Governments of the UK have expressed a desire to reduce the environmental impact of products in the grocery sector. The Product Sustainability Forum was set up to take this work forward and to share best practice.
