Cargill Expands Climate Change Commitments

Company makes science-based commitment to reduce supply chain emissions by 30% by 2030 and reinforces commitment to goals of the Paris Climate Agreement

 

With a global footprint and presence in major food and agriculture supply chains around the globe, Cargill is committed to protecting the earth’s vital natural resources and reducing its environmental impact. In alignment with its climate commitment, Cargill has adopted a Scope 3 target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in its global supply chains by 30% per ton of product by 2030.

 

This goal aligns with many of Cargill’s customers, who are driving toward similar climate goals. Cargill has also reinforced its intent to prioritize climate through three recent activities aligned with companies around the globe, including pledging to the CEO climate statement, signing on to the We Are Still In coalition to continue supporting the Paris Climate Accord and convening at the UN Climate Change Conference COP 25 in Madrid.

 

The commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from its global supply chain by 30% per ton of product by 2030, in combination with the previously announced operational goal to reduce absolute emissions by 10%, has been approved by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi), a collaboration between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).

 

To reduce its climate impact, Cargill is focused on targeted supply chain interventions, programming and policy solutions benefiting farmers, customers and the broader food system.
