We are committed to respecting our environment and to eliminating deforestation and natural ecosystem conversion from our supply chains. This includes long-term protection and remediation where necessary.
We believe that conservation and protection of forests and natural ecosystems are fundamental to good business and to address the climate change our world is facing. We have both the ability and responsibility to drive positive change in these areas through our global work.
In 2022, Kraft Heinz committed to advancing our responsible sourcing program to include new no deforestation and conversion roadmaps, underpinning the release of our new Global No Deforestation Policy. This policy and the supporting roadmaps were developed in partnership with Proforest, a non-profit specializing in responsible production and sourcing of agricultural and forest commodities. In 2022, we completed a deforestation and conversion-free analysis of our value chain and developed 10-year roadmaps for our primary deforestation-linked commodities.
Kraft Heinz commits to no deforestation across its primary deforestation-linked commodities, with a target date of 2025. Beyond this, we are committed to working within our own operations and with our suppliers and business partners to achieve conversion-free practices by 2030. This includes management and reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and water consumption, and maintenance and protection of biodiversity, natural habitats, water sources, and water bodies.
Our policy was released in June 2023 and aligns with the Accountability Framework initiative guidance, the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi), as well as sectorial approaches, where they exist. To bring this commitment to life, Kraft Heinz is committed to working with our suppliers and business partners to implement best practices and facilitate compliance with this policy.
