Creating shared value
Natural resources are shared by everyone and must be preserved for people today and for generations to come.
For our business
We depend on nature for our raw materials and the conditions we need to grow them – including a predictable climate, healthy soils and oceans, clean water and the right conditions for pollination.
Why it matters
A thriving planet is essential for every living thing. Yet humans are depleting the world’s limited resources at an increasing rate and producing growing volumes of waste.
Safeguarding the environment is a shared responsibility. For our part, we are undertaking ambitious operational changes to preserve resources and we are calling for others to follow our lead.
Safeguarding the environment
Demonstrating our commitment
We envision a future without waste. This means both increasing recycling rates and identifying alternatives to existing packaging options. It also means sharing information that helps our farmers, suppliers and consumers act more sustainably.
We are very proud of what we have accomplished during five years of sustainability commitments. Meeting our packaging reduction target ahead of schedule, we used 2020 to accelerate the development of new materials and alternative delivery systems. We shared sustainability insights with millions of consumers globally, while farmer engagement helped build a more responsible supply chain.
Reaching our zero waste ambition requires continuous efforts. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have acted quickly to ensure surplus food goes to people in need rather than landfill sites.
