How we do it

With a rapidly growing global population and diminishing resources, as a society we need to do more with less. These global forces are now shaping new market expectations and the expectations of customers. That’s why we constantly strive to develop new, innovative solutions that reduce the environmental footprint of our products and services across their life cycle, from the raw materials we source through to the end of their life. We are also actively working to significantly minimise our operational footprint and impact. By protecting the environment, we are securing our future growth as well as societal development.

Our environmental efforts have a significant social impact throughout our value chain. Upstream, we expect our suppliers to comply with our social and environmental criteria. In many cases we are engaged in the development of leading sustainability practices and standards. Downstream, we are informing consumers about responsible waste management and recycling, while also helping to create socio-economic value for communities through the use of recyclable materials. Our work under Futures combines our efforts to support sound environmental development, strengthen communities and contribute to sustainable food value chains.

Post-consumer recycling
