Our commitment: Preserve natural capital, including forests

Preserving habitats and enhancing biodiversity

As the source of many of our raw materials, our long-term success depends on maintaining the health of natural capital, particularly land, soil, trees and water. We seek to act as a responsible steward of natural resources, particularly in terms of water preservation, working to eradicate deforestation from our supply chain, and improving soil management and biodiversity conservation.
