Kellogg Company Exceeds GHG Emissions Reduction Goal Ahead of Schedule

Sep 30, 2020

As part of its Kellogg’s Better Days commitment, Kellogg has made tremendous progress limiting GHG emissions in its operations by using low carbon and renewable energy sources, purchasing renewable electricity and increasing energy efficiency.

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.

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.

“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.”

The company has reduced direct & indirect GHG emissions by more than 28%; continues to drive reductions across its supply chain.

Kellogg is also a current member of the Race to Zero campaign, you can find more information on their climate actions here.
