The Kraft Heinz Company has made a pledge to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions across its operational footprint and entire global supply chain by 2050.
Its near term target includes emissions reduction of 50% by 2030 across all three scopes and procuring a majority of its electricity from renewable energy sources by 2025.
The company’s key focus areas of its net zero programme includes promoting regenerative and sustainable practices across its agricultural supply chain, transitioning to more circular and recyclable consumer packaging and continuing to transition key onsite manufacturing facilities to using renewable energy sources.
Kraft Heinz CEO Miguel Patricio said: “As one of the world’s largest food and beverage companies, we take seriously our responsibility to slash our environmental impact in the face of climate change.
“Through partnerships with leading NGOs and across our supply chain, we look to seize opportunities to reduce emissions and minimize our footprint, from the farms that grow our ingredients to the manufacturing facilities that prepare our products.”
