Our responsible partnerships: moving forward together
Partnering with the WWF to reduce our environmental impact
We have partnered with the WWF since 2010, working to improve our sustainable food offers and purchasing practices. The partnership was renewed in May 2020 for 3 years, focused on promoting sustainable eating and reducing carbon emissions, including the following workstreams:
- increase the share of low-carbon menus
- source responsibly
- reduce food waste
- foster employee engagement.
Fighting against food waste
We are committed to prevent food waste and have teamed up with different organisations to make sure we stay on track. With our partners’ help, we are working to achieve our objective to reduce our food waste by 50%.
Implementing a “farm to fork” approach with the International Food Waste Coalition
We are aware that it requires a huge effort from all participants in the food chain to make a decisive positive impact. We are proud be a founding member of the International Food Waste Coalition (IFWC), joining forces and expertise with other companies to prevent food waste with a collaborative “farm-to-fork” approach.
Sharing expertise to make a collective impact with Champions 12.3
Champions 12.3 is a coalition of executives dedicated to working towards achieving the 12.3 United Nations’ goal to halve global food waste by 2030. Sophie Bellon, our Chairwoman and CEO is furthering our focus on taking strong, transparent action to support the sustainable use of natural resources, waste reduction and food waste diversion.
Uniting leading food companies against waste with the 10x20x30 initiative
As another step we have taken towards the United Nations’ Target 12.3, we have joined the 10x20x30 initiative, along with nine other world leaders in the food industry. With the goal of efficient collective waste reduction, these partners are working with 20 of their priority suppliers to implement shared waste measurement processes throughout the value chain.
Protecting animals with Global Coalition for Animal Welfare
Joining forces to build a more inclusive society
In recognition of record-high levels of inequality, we have joined the G7 coalition Business for Inclusive Growth (B4IG). The coalition is made up of 34 leading international companies that have committed to stepping up business action to advance human rights throughout their value chains, building inclusive workplaces, and improving inclusion in their internal and external business ecosystems.
We also nurture external strategic partnerships to accelerate their efforts to contribute in a relevant way toward equality and justice in society.
