Kraft Heinz publishes report on social and environmental governance, including diversity and inclusion goals
Kraft Heinz Co. recently released its latest Social and Environmental Governance (ESG) report, which includes progress towards the company’s three ESG pillars in 2020 and its 2025 aspirations for diversity, inclusion and membership (“DI&B”).
“Our ESG 2021 report is a testament to our approximately 38,000 employees around the world who have gone above and beyond to support our communities and each other in 2020,” said Miguel Patricio, CEO of Kraft Heinz. “We are committed to higher standards, mobilizing to boldly tackle the environmental and societal challenges we face today and those that lie ahead. “
The company’s three ESG pillars are healthy lifestyles and community support, environmental stewardship and responsible sourcing. Progress towards these pillars includes providing more than $ 40 million in financial donations and products for the causes of COVID-19 aid, food insecurity and social justice around the world. Additionally, 83% of global packaging was made from 100% recyclable, reusable or compostable materials, and 66% of the eggs used by the company were supplied by cage-free or better farms.
The company’s DI&B 2025 aspirations include increasing the representation of women in management from 37% to 50% and increasing the number of people of color who are salaried employees from 24% to 30%.
