When your company’s ultimate sustainability goal is to improve the quality of all life, there’s no shortage of work to be done. We’re reducing our environmental footprint as we increase our support of programs that strengthen communities worldwide.
Doing business with the environment in mind
Our approach to business proceeds from the recognition that to ensure a viable future, humanity must live within the limits of the earth’s resources. As we grow as a business, we’re also taking steps to leave the planet in better condition than we found it. To achieve that aim, we follow clear guiding principles. We’re also guided by clear environmental goals—targets for improving our performance in areas of impact we’ve prioritized according to our ability to make a difference. They include goals for reducing greenhouse gases, cutting landfill waste and sourcing responsibly. Between 2012 and 2014, we met or exceeded all of our goals and laid the groundwork for new, more ambitious targets.
