More dirt on General Mills’ sustainable agriculture goals

More dirt on General Mills’ sustainable agriculture goals | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it
To reduce its footprint, General Mills has set a goal of cutting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 28 percent by 2025. It’s moving towards zero waste-to-landfill at 100 percent of its production facilities over the same timeframe. And it has committed to sustainably sourcing 100 percent of 10 key ingredients. A strict animal welfare policy, including a plan to source cage-free eggs from Canada and the United States, means that nearly all of General Mills' U.S. milk supply will comply with national animal stewardship standards.
EcoVadis's insight:

Great to see General Mills setting impressive sustainable goals.
