Environmental research

Brook Lyndhurst is an independent research and strategy consultancy. We use a variety of research techniques to tackle questions concerned with understanding, promoting and delivering sustainable development. Broadly, our work falls into one of six key areas – climate change; communities; business and sustainability; waste and resources; food; and sustainable lifestyles.

Future trends in resource efficiency and waste generation in the food chain

Resource efficiency

Defra commissioned Brook Lyndhurst, with support from an expert panel, to carry out a scoping study to explore the key influences affecting future trends in waste and resource efficiency in the food chain.

The research took the form of a scenario planning exercise, exploring a range of possible future trends over the next decade, their impacts on the behaviour of the food chain, and the resulting waste, water use and GHG implications.
