In late July, General Mills committed to setting targets to reduce emissions, participate in real climate advocacy, and become a true climate leader. On August 12, Kellogg followed suit and became the second global food giant in one month to commit to bold new steps to fight climate change and reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
General Mills has pledged to:
- “Know and show” by disclosing their emissions as well as their suppliers of sugar cane and palm oil.
- Set emissions reductions targets by 2015 and put in place stronger safeguards against deforestation.
- Advocate by taking a leadership role in addressing climate change with businesses and governments.
While Kellogg specifies that, for the first time, the company will set targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions related to agricultural production. It will also join a leading coalition of businesses committed to working with lawmakers to pass meaningful climate and energy legislation.
