Paulig Sustainability Approach 2030 is based on United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and comprises three focus areas and ambitions:
Our ambition is that, by 2030, 70% of our products and services enable health and wellbeing of people and the planet. Our product portfolio is almost 100% plant-based today, and we will continue to develop our products in a healthier direction as well as innovate new products which are good for both people and the planet. We also aim to systematically reduce the carbon footprint of our products as well as inspire consumers to opt for sustainable choices.
Paulig is among the forerunner companies in the food & beverage industry, and we have science-based climate targets approved by the Science Based Targets initiative. We have committed to limit the global temperature rise to a maximum of 1.5°C in our operations and value chain. Our ambition is that by 2030, we will reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from our own operations by 80% and our value chain by 50%.
Along with our climate ambition, we have committed to work towards circularity and have set a target that all our packaging will be recyclable and made from renewable or recycled materials by 2030.
In addition, we are committed to the global challenge of reducing food loss by 50% by 2030.
Our aim is to be a fair and inclusive partner and employer throughout our value chain. All our coffee is already 100% from verified sustainable sources and we aim to extend this work to cover also other raw materials. The goal is that all of our raw materials from high-risk areas come from sustainable sources verified by external parties by 2030. This will require more systematic due diligence process and a holistic way of working with our suppliers and other partners (e.g. civil societies) throughout our value chain. We continue to develop our values-driven company culture to ensure that all our employees perceive Paulig as a fair and inclusive company.
