Our supporting 2020 goals, which track back to a FY2008 baseline, keep us continually focused on building sustainable business models. They include:
– Deliver 100% of global packaging from sustainable materials (renewable, recyclable, or from recycled content)

Our vision over the long-term is to eventually bring to market plastic bottles that are made with 100 percent renewable raw materials and that are fully recyclable, just like existing PET bottles are. Ultimately, our goal is to develop recyclable plastic bottles made from 100% plant-based waste — turning waste into a resource.
In addition to increasing recycled content, we are also seeking more sustainable alternatives for the source of PET we use. In recent years, there has been a significant increase in PET manufactured from bio-based raw materials. In particular, we support the use of bio-plastics made from waste, such as bagasse (a by-product from the production of sugar cane). We will continue to explore opportunities to introduce this plant-based PET into our supply chain to reduce carbon emissions and move away from petroleum-based materials.

Our sustainable packaging approaches include: – Low-impact sourcing: Making sustainability one of the essential criteria in purchasing decisions, along with quality, price and innovation. This will ensure a “least-carbon intensive” approach throughout our supply chain.
– Bio-sourcing: Taking advantage of advances in bio-sourced materials, especially as replacements for oil/gas derived plastics.
– Recycling: Substituting some part of virgin content for recycled content.
– Material substitution: Using components made from less carbon-intensive materials.
– Recyclable packaging: Identifying opportunities to pursue recyclable primary packaging, as well as inserts.
– Elimination: We are identifying and striving to eliminate components within our packaging where possible.
General Mills, Inc.View Profile
We continually innovate to reduce the environmental impact of packaging through better design – by decreasing materials use, switching to lower impact materials (including renewable) and improving truckload packing efficiencies.
2020 plan to minimize environmental impact of product packaging:
Achieve a minimum of 25 percent recycled content for all plastics and/or 20 percent of plastics to be bio-based alternatives.
Ten percent average YOY individual programs increase in recycled content. Eliminate elemental chlorine in paper bleaching process

This sustainability framework is based on the following principles:
1. Reducing and removing packaging
2. Sourcing renewable and recycled packaging materials
3. Choosing packaging that can be realistically recycled
4. Avoiding the use of harmful substances in packaging
5. Providing information to customers that increases understanding of how best to recycle or dispose of packaging
Tyson Foods, Inc.View Profile
Without compromising quality or product protection, our packaging design process prioritizes increasing the use of recyclable and renewable materials, as well as minimizing packaging where possible.
Wegmans Food Markets, Inc.View Profile
To improve the sustainability of its packaging, Wegmans is focused on reducing the amount of virgin materials – new plastic or paper made from non-renewable fossil fuels – and replacing it with mineral fillers, and renewable and recycled materials.
