Our Strategy and Goals

Sustainability is at the core of our business. By making responsible and efficient choices that prioritize our environments, resources, people and communities, we are laying the groundwork for future growth and innovation. Continuously evolving how we think and operate allows us to deliver against these commitments and serves as the backbone for the ambitious nature of the targets that make up the Twentyby30 program.

Our strategy is to concentrate our efforts on initiatives where we can create notable impact, including making operational improvements in energy, water and waste and elevating our focus on material use efficiency, recycling, responsible and ethical sourcing and food contact and safety. We strive to take a leadership position in these areas and be the best employer, partner and corporate citizen that we can be.

Our approach is informed by ongoing materiality assessments and reflects issues that are important to our stakeholders, including customers, investors and employees. Areas of action were also prioritized based on their level of global urgency. Finally, we support the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), helping us to contribute to greater collective change. 

By 2030, we aim to achieve the following goals, for which we are measuring progress against a 2019 baseline:
