    Abstract

    This summary paper is drawn from a larger report commissioned by the Sustainable Consumption Institute at the University of Manchester (www.sci.manchester.ac.uk) and compiled in conjunction with the retailer, Tesco, and the agriscience business, Syngenta. The project's main aim was to identify how sensing data and Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) could be used to improve sustainability, in particular to drive waste reduction in the supply chain from farm-to-retailer. The key points identified in the report are outlined below.
