Kraft Heinz Updates Emission Progress
Kraft Heinz achieved a waste-to-landfill intensity reduction of nearly 15% in 2021 on the way to reaching its goal of 20% across its manufacturing facilities by 2025.
In 2021, Kraft Heinz committed to achieving net-zero GHG emissions across its operational footprint (Scope 1 and 2) and global supply chain (Scope 3) by 2050, with a near-term goal of halving emissions by 2030.
Kraft Heinz continues to drive progress toward its goal of using 100% recyclable, reusable, or compostable packaging by 2025. Through 2021, approximately 84% of the Company's global packaging portfolio met this goal.
Details were provided in its 2022 Environmental Social Governance ("ESG") Report, titled "Together at the Table."
"The food industry has seen countless challenges in the last two years," said Miguel Patricio, Kraft Heinz CEO and Chair of the Board of Directors in a statement. "It is during these challenging moments when true innovation happens, and collaborations are most important. Working with our many partners, we are developing solutions to foster a more inclusive workforce, address climate challenges, and combat food insecurity. Now more than ever, it is critical that businesses like ours take a leadership role in addressing the environmental and social issues that affect all of us around the world."
