We’re proud to announce our renewed commitment to reduce environmental impact and drive sustainable growth at scale, by joining the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and setting greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets consistent with requirements to keep global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius.
Already on track to reduce emissions across our manufacturing operations by 15 percent by the end of 2020, this expanded commitment will result in a further 10 percent emissions reduction across our value chain, over and above the impact of business growth from farm to shelf by 2025, compared to a 2018 baseline.
“We take climate change very seriously because of the negative impact it has on people and planet, including within our own value chain. Our sustainable snacking strategy puts us at the forefront of sustainable ingredient sourcing and continues our contribution to addressing climate change by reducing emissions,” said Van de Put. “Setting science-based targets is an important step forward in further reducing our environmental impact, an imperative for sustainable growth as we live our purpose to empower people to snack right.”
The announcement furthers our commitment to share progress regularly against our sustainability goals. We will also be issuing the 2019 Snacking Made Right report, which will include progress toward our sustainability goals, later in 2020.
