Towards a healthy and sustainable world

Sustainability has been at the heart of our business since its foundation. We were founded on the idea that a package should save more than it costs, and today our ambition is to lead the sustainability transformation to impact industries and communities positively.

We commit to making food safe and available, everywhere and we promise to protect what’s good - protecting food, people and the planet. We will lead the sustainability transformation by focusing on 8 areas where we believe we can have the greatest impact. 

Our focus areas

Food safety & quality

Safe and nutritious food is critical to feed a growing population. Read how we can contribute to secure, resilient and sustainable global food systems2.

Food loss & waste

Food loss mainly occurs during production or because food is discarded and never gets packaged, whereas food waste can be driven by short shelf life and unsustainable consumer consumption practices. Read how we are working to reduce food loss and waste.
Learn more

Food access & availability

As food is transported to people’s homes, it can be deterred by a lack of infrastructure. In fact, the inability to receive food safely can contribute to hunger in some developing countries. Read how we are helping to make food more available, everywhere.

Biodiversity & nature

With the world losing 137 wildlife species every day4 and deforestation occurring, we need to help restore and protect ecosystems. Read how we aim to reduce our impact on nature.
Learn more

Circularity & recycling

With the amount of waste generated projected to increase by 70% by 20505, we need to move towards more circular food systems that prevent food waste. Read how we are leading the way.
