Climate change is crucial to our future as a business because as our environment is threatened, so is our ability to operate. The severe weather induced by rising temperatures creates risk for flooding, drought and other disasters that can impact farming, and as a result, the livelihood of the food industry, a key sector we serve. Extreme weather events may also force production at our facilities to halt if they become damaged or unsafe.
As a global manufacturer, we have an important role to play in slowing the pace of climate change. That is why our commitment to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is informed by science-based climate targets, the regulatory landscape and our decades of experience in implementing strategic programs across our global manufacturing facilities.
