Pilgrim's Pride Lowers Emissions
Pilgrim's Pride, a global food company, completed its first sustainability-linked bond audit, reduced Scope 1 and 2 GHG emission intensity by 10% from its 2019 baseline and invested over $18.7 million in 64 GHG emission reduction projects in Pilgrim’s facilities.
The company is making progress toward the commitment to achieve a 30% reduction in Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emission intensity by 2030.
The newly-created Pilgrim’s Pride ESG committee of the Pilgrim’s board of directors was also developed, which has been tasked with overseeing areas such as climate change.
Details were provided in its 2021 Sustainability Report, which includes progress updates toward the organization’s 2030 goals that were announced last year.
“At Pilgrim’s, we recognize our role as a global food company and a large employer in the areas where we operate,” said CEO Fabio Sandri in a statement. “We are working to leverage our scale and influence to help food and agriculture be part of the solution to many of the sustainability challenges we face around the world.”
