Reflecting on our Sustainability Achievements in 2017

By Jennifer Davis, Global Sustainability Activation, Customers & Brands

At Kellogg Company, our sustainability team works to ensure that our cereals, snacks, frozen and veggie foods are grown and made in the most ethical, environmental and socially responsible way. In a world where there are more people and increasingly limited natural resources, we are working hard to ensure that there is enough food for everyone. To do this, we have adopted a sustainability strategy that includes transparent milestones, and a commitment to conserving natural resources and sourcing responsibly. These efforts help us fulfill our company’s purpose and help families around the world flourish and thrive. To illustrate how these goals come to life, we’ve created this short video.

 

As a global food company, our work starts on the farm. We are dedicated to producing simple food made by real people. This commitment earns us a seat at millions of tables around the world. Together with our partners we will create 3 billion better days for people through our Breakfasts for Better Days™ initiative. We know that this isn’t something we can do alone, so we’re actively engaging with our employees, members of the communities where we live and work, suppliers and partners, and many others who want to join us on this journey.  We’ve developed partnerships to build on-the-ground projects to support farmers with climate-smart agriculture practices and improve the livelihoods of farmers and farm workers. We also work to reduce our use of water and energy in our manufacturing plants, while also reducing waste. And we’re working closely with our suppliers and industry partners to ensure that we provide a working environment where people’s rights are protected.

I’m fortunate that every day I have the opportunity to work for an organization that leads with purpose. As I reflect on Kellogg’s commitments, I ‘m really proud of the positive impact that we are making — and the better days that are the outcome of these efforts.
