Global food processing company Kraft Heinz has taken steps toward transparency and deeper CSR commitment, with the company publishing its first ever sustainability report.

The report addresses a number of core CSR targets, including water consumption, reduction in energy use, waste and emissions, as well as the need for full traceability when it comes to palm oil commodities. It is too early to predict the tangibility of the efforts outlined, but, as edie.net reports, “the report reveals that Kraft Heinz – owner of major brands such as Capri Sun and Philadelphia – is now sourcing 100% of its palm oil from certified sustainable sources, with more than 90% traceable to the mill”.

Displaying modest progress on food waste and emissions, a commitment 100% FAD-free tuna has also been outlined by Kraft Heinz, in addition to a transition to a 100% cage-free egg supply globally by 2025. Another notable announcement concerns the pledge to source 100% of #palmoil from RSPO certification.

The company has a lot to do when it comes to sustainability, environmental responsibility and overall ethical practice, but the news signals a step in the right direction.
