The Courtauld Commitment 2030 Water Ambition

What is it and what are the main aims?

The Courtauld 2030 Commitment (C2030) is an ambitious voluntary agreement that aims to bring together organisations across the food system to make food and drink production and consumption more sustainable. Signatories have made a commitment to: cut the amount of resource needed to provide our food and drink by one-fifth in 10 years.

The Rivers Trust are facilitating a “Water Stewardship Service” to deliver the “collective action” that is required to enable C2030 signatories, their producers, growers and processors, to positively influence their impact on water throughout the supply chain.

Where is it being delivered?

The Broadland Rivers and Cam and Ely Ouse (CamEO) catchments in East Anglia are two of six pilot areas across the UK that have been selected to deliver collective action through the Courtauld Commitment. Therefore, the project will be directly collaborating and working with both the Broadland Rivers and CamEO catchment partnerships.
