Kellogg Company Exceeds Greenhouse Gas Reduction Goal Ahead of Schedule
BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the United Nations, to curb the devastating effects of climate change on the global food supply, the world must halve greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030. As part of its Kellogg's® Better Days commitment, Kellogg is making tremendous progress limiting GHG emissions in its operations by using low carbon and renewable energy sources, purchasing renewable electricity and increasing energy efficiency. Since 2015, Kellogg has reduced scope 1 & 2 GHG emissions in its manufacturing plants by more than 28%, and exceeded one year ahead of schedule its goal to reduce GHG emissions by 15% per pound of food produced.
Kellogg set its first sustainability commitments in 2008, and in 2015 was one of the first companies to set Science-Based Targets to help limit the global warming to below 1.5°C.
"As a global food company, we have a responsibility to address the significant risks climate change poses on people and our planet," said Amy Senter, Kellogg Company Chief Sustainability Officer. "We're proud of our progress and are working on multiple fronts to reduce emissions across our supply chain."
