ESG Strategy & Goals
In support of our Vision: To sustainably grow by delighting more consumers globally, we are committed to responsible, sustainable practices extending to each facet of our business. The Kraft Heinz ESG strategy prioritizes the issues that matter most to the Company business and stakeholders, focusing on areas that have the greatest impact. It includes three key pillars: Healthy Living & Community Support, Environmental Stewardship and Responsible Sourcing.
Our goal is to build value among our Company’s broad set of stakeholders by incorporating socially responsible business practices within our own operations and across every stage of our supply chain. We’re setting ambitious environmental goals, sourcing sustainably, improving the products we sell and making impactful advancements in communities – all with a commitment to transparency and two-way dialogue. This continues to be our way forward.

Healthy Living & Community Support
A key part of our corporate strategy is a commitment to people, to nutrition and health, and to making life delicious all at once. Some of the actions we are taking to support this commitment include ongoing improvements to the nutrition of our product portfolio, transparent and responsible marketing and communications, and alignment with credible science and public health goals.
Through these actions, we aim to contribute to the key priorities and target achievements outlined by the World Health Organization’s Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases, and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Increase our plant-based offerings.
Environmental stewardship begins with our operational footprint, where we actively strive to conserve water and energy, reduce emissions, minimize waste and make our packaging sustainable.
Our manufacturing sites can consume substantial amounts of resources, and are controlled by us, so we focus significant efforts around environmental stewardship inside of our walls.
At Kraft Heinz, we not only believe in striving to be better every day within our own operations, but we aspire to work with our entire value chain to continually improve on social and environmental factors.
We are dedicated to responsible sourcing and related impacts in critical areas to Kraft Heinz and our stakeholders. These include areas of focus such as human rights, deforestation, animal welfare and sustainable agriculture. We are also committed to strengthening our due diligence and management programs, while keeping the needs of our suppliers and our customers a top priority.
