Our sustainability agenda “A Sweeter Future” focuses on creating joy and long-lasting value For You, For People and For the Planet. During 2021, progress flavored each area in a different way, including introducing more vegan options, enriching the social impacts in our supply chain through our partnerships, and setting ambitious targets and activating teams across the organization to work toward our Science based targets.

As a signatory participant of the UN Global Compact since 2009, we support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), both directly and indirectly through our work in our three pillars. As a fast-moving consumer goods business with a global value chain, we have chosen to focus on the following six Sustainable Development Goals; Responsible Consumption and Production (#12), Gender Equality (#5), Decent Work and Economic Growth (#8), Climate Action (#13), Life on Land (#15) and Partnerships for the Goals (#17).

For the planet

A healthy planet is the source of all our ingredients – and securing true joy for the future. We make sure to use resources efficiently, lower our climate impact and we’re also committed to the Science Based Targets initiative.

Approach:

Climate action, sustainable sourcing, and less and better packaging are our three main priorities in improving our footprint. Within these, we work towards improving the environmental performance of our suppliers, assessing topics like biodiversity, energy usage, waste, and emissions in our own operations but also in our supply chain.
