Acting on climate change
Climate change is one of the most important global issues of our time. It is already apparent in changing weather patterns, more extreme climate events and changes in resource availability. As a global food and beverage company, we are heavily impacted by climate change. Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, switching to renewable energy sources and taking other actions to mitigate the effects of climate change are necessary to help ensure the ongoing success of our own business and those in our supply chain, as well as protecting the world around us. In September 2019, we committed to achieving zero GHG emissions across our value chain by 2050.
Protecting natural capital
Preserving natural capital is crucial for safeguarding our supply of raw materials and the future of our business. We work collaboratively to protect the health of these habitats, focusing on shared water resources, eliminating deforestation from our supply chain, improving soil management, protecting the oceans and preserving biodiversity. We strive to support all these actions by sourcing our raw materials responsibly and promoting sustainable consumption.
