US Foods Sets 2032 Goals

US Foods Holding Corp. announced it commits to and is pursuing SBTi validation for the reduction of Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 32.5% by 2032 from a 2019 base year and that 35% of its suppliers by emissions, covering 71% of purchased goods and services will have science-based targets by 2027.

The company will continue to reduce emissions by optimizing routing to reduce miles driven, deploying new vehicle technology and investing in alternative fuels such as compressed natural gas, renewable natural gas and renewable diesel fuel. The company will add 30 EV trucks by 2023 and continue to expand its EV fleet to reduce its Scope 1 emissions. Additionally, the company will continue to optimize the efficiency of its building operations by investing in renewable energy such as solar array installations and accelerating its adoption of energy-efficient equipment and technologies.

In support of Scope 3 commitments, US Foods has completed a comprehensive screening of its Scope 3 emissions. As the majority of the company’s total GHG emissions are Scope 3 emissions produced within the company’s value chain, the company has committed to engaging with its suppliers to ensure that key suppliers who contribute to the company’s Scope 3 emissions set science-based targets by 2027.

US Foods will focus on engaging suppliers of its purchased goods and services, which comprise more than 95% of the company’s Scope 3 emissions and will collaborate with suppliers to develop chain interventions to support suppliers in their climate action journeys.

“These ongoing investments are a testament to our dedication to reducing our organization’s environmental footprint,” said Kristin Coleman, executive vice president, general counsel and leader of CSR at US Foods in a statement. “The expansion of our facility and fleet efficiency initiatives are a critical part of US Foods’ long-range sustainability plans to drive end-to-end change.”
