The Kraft Heinz Company is committing to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in its operational and global supply chains by 2050. In the short term, the food supplier is aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030. For the latter, it will focus on scope 3 emissions, as this comprises 95% of total emissions generated by the company.
To achieve this, Kraft Heinz will be taking strides that are aligned with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) Net-Zero Standard. These include promoting regenerative and sustainable processes across operations and utilising renewable sources for electricity by 2025. The company will be adopting more recyclable packaging to contribute to a circular economy.
“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,” said Kraft Heinz CEO Miguel Patricio.
“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.”
