Ambition 2025 – Shaping Sustainable Value Chains
FDF's “Ambition 2025 – Shaping Sustainable Value Chains”
builds on the success
of our Five-Fold Environmental Ambition and is the next step on our journey to
help deliver a more sustainable food system.
In order to remain industry leading nearly a decade on, Ambition 2025 takes the
Five-Fold forward with new commitments to take into account the ever changing
sustainability agenda and the complexity of issues that are increasingly
a whole-chain approach.

Ambition 2025 in the wider context
With sustainability covering such a holistic agenda, we recognise we cannot
drive transformational change across the whole system on our own, so
is key. The Ambition is predominantly focused on environmental sustainability
this is the area where we believe we can, collectively as a sector, make the
biggest positive impact. To read more about how the Ambition fits within the
sustainability context and also across FDF's broader sustainability work
