Eliminate Unfavorable Materials
As the result of a multi-year BPA initiative, more than 300 OWN Brands canned goods are now packaged in non-BPA lined cans. This represents more than 80% of our OWN Brands canned offerings. The process of transitioning to non-BPA lined cans will continue until the conversion reaches 100%. In a move toward greater transparency, by the end of 2018, converted cans will be identifiable by “BPA Free” and “Non-BPA Lining” disclosure logos.
Decrease plastic usage, with an emphasis on single-use plastics
Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Reduce absolute emissions by 25% by 2020 versus a 2010 baseline.
As we work to make our operations more efficient, we understand the need to work toward reducing the overall environmental footprint of our business. It is critical that we achieve business growth while reducing greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption and use of other important resources.
Provide clear recycling communications on Own Brands product packaging, including the use of QR Codes, by 2022. The company is working with How2Recycle to standardize its labeling system and improve the reliability, completeness, and transparency of recyclability claims.
