2018 Global Responsibility Report

Without a doubt, we’re facing unprecedented change in the food industry and on our planet.

Expectations for food companies have never been higher – consumers want assurance that their food has been grown and made responsibly. They want to know that the brands and companies from whom they buy show respect for people, animals and the environment.

We also recognize the significant changes occurring on our planet – a growing global population and natural resource challenges that will grow more acute as that population increases. All of us rely on a healthy planet to thrive and our business model does, too.

For both of these reasons, we aim to be a part of the solution.emissions-stat

Our business is rooted in making food people love and that starts with treating the world with care. We work towards these goals through focused investments and actions to advance sustainability – such as driving progress toward our ambitious 2025 climate goals and sustainably sourcing our top 10 ingredients by 2020.

We embrace our responsibility to help achieve a stable climate, clean water, healthy soil, strong ecosystems and thriving farm communities.

Our 2018 Global Responsibility Report describes our strategies and performance across four key focus areas: Our Food, Our Planet, Our Workplace and Our Community. We’ve focused on the topics that are most important to consumers, stakeholders and our business.

Some highlights on our work and progress in 2017 include:
