Healthy Living and Community Support
Under our Healthy Living and Community Support pillar, a key part of our strategy is a commitment to people, nutrition and health and making life delicious all at once. Some of the actions we are taking to support this commitment include ongoing improvements to nutrition in our portfolio, transparent and responsible marketing and communications, as well as alignment with credible science and public health goals. Through these actions, we aim to contribute to the key priorities and target achievements outlined by the World Health Organisation’s Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases, and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Our global Kraft Heinz Healthy Living and Community Support commitments and goals include:
Our Environmental Stewardship pillar begins with our operational footprint, where we actively strive to conserve water and energy, reduce emissions, minimise waste and make our packaging sustainable.
We are progressing towards our sustainable packaging aim to make 100% of our packaging recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025.
Locally Kraft Heinz are rolling out the Australasian Recycling Logo (ARL) on all our food and beverage packaging. This is an evidence-based system, which provides consumers with easy to understand recycling information on one label.
Finally, under our Responsible Sourcing pillar, we not only believe in striving to be better every day within our own operations, but we aspire to work with our entire value chain to continually improve on social and environmental factors. These include areas of focus such as human rights, deforestation, animal welfare and sustainable agriculture.
In Australia we published our Kraft Heinz Joint Modern Slavery Statement 2021, our commitment to human rights, which you can view here.
