The project was commissioned by the National Zero Waste Council. An Executive Summary of the <a href="/Documents/NZWCTaxIncentivesReport.pdf" target="_blank">Study on Organic Waste Reduction: Tax Incentive Options for Charitable Food Donations—Making the Business Case</a> is on the website and the full report can be found on the members’ website. Using the business case as a foundation, a policy proposal is now being developed that will articulate how to apply fiscal incentives to reduce waste in Canada. </p> </div>http://www.nzwc.ca/bulletin/PublishingImages/Spring-2015-Food-Working-Group.jpg2015-06-17T07:00:00ZGP0|#c2591d37-d237-45d0-98c3-e84ee55e5dad;L0|#0c2591d37-d237-45d0-98c3-e84ee55e5dad|June 2015;GTSet|#78f153b4-3e08-4266-8725-bd656ec40488<div class="ExternalClass78B3A0DF9D8D4FF39539D0B6CC2405C3"><p>Developing a proposal for the introduction of a fiscal incentive for the donation of surplus, edible food.</p></div>
