Kellogg has announced new science-based greenhouse gas (GHG) emission targets, in which it plans to cut GHG emissions by 65% across its own operations (Scope 1 and 2) and, for the first time, work with suppliers (Scope 3) to help reduce their emissions by 50% by 2050.

“Science shows that climate change will reduce food productivity and food security at the same time our world’s population is growing and requiring us to feed more people with fewer natural resources,” said John Bryant, Kellogg chairman and CEO. “That’s why Kellogg is working on multiple fronts to address the risks climate change poses.”

Kellogg recognizes that upstream agriculture emissions and manufacturing are the largest sources of emissions in the company’s supply chain and is focusing efforts on reductions in these two areas. Since 2008, Kellogg has already reduced GHG emissions from its manufacturing facilities by approximately 12%. The new targets are an extension of the 2020 global sustainability goals Kellogg set in August 2014.

The methodology for Kellogg’s new goals is based on the Science Based Targets, a joint initiative by CDP, the UN Global Compact, the World Resources Institute, and WWF. The majority (75%) of the company’s direct suppliers will report progress annually through CDP Supply Chain by 2020.
