We are working with suppliers and customers to minimise our environmental impact across the value chain, from sourcing to production and from use to disposal of our products and equipment.
Our climate goal is to cap our 2020 impact across our value chain at 2010 levels, regardless of business growth. Although this requires action at every level of our business and supply chain, the two major drivers of progress towards our goal are improving our energy efficiency and increasing the use of renewable electricity.
Our supply chain currently accounts for a significant share of the greenhouse gas emissions in our value chain. We work closely with packaging material supplier partners to identify efficiencies, both in their operations and through their own supply chains.
By applying World Class Manufacturing principles, we can reduce energy, waste and water, while making our factories and offices more efficient. At the same time, we are looking to the future and exploring ways of continuing to manage our impact even after we have maximised our energy reductions. One way is by increasing our use of renewable electricity.
Forty percent of our total climate impact comes from equipment use by our customers. We support them to reduce their carbon footprint and costs through more efficient processing and packaging equipment and products, as well as services to reduce energy use, water consumption, waste and food loss.
