As the world changes we must reconsider the future of food. The Food and Beverage industry are using our planet’s limited resources, and the industry is a big part of the climate and health solutions. Our mission is to enable the future of food, and this mission is the core of Paulig’s sustainability approach 2030.  

How does the future of sustainability look like?

In spring 2020 we set new strategic sustainability targets for Paulig and soon after that, we were all surprised by the COVID-19 pandemic. Kaisa Lipponen, SVP, Communications and Sustainability, and Lea Rankinen, Director, Sustainability & Public Affairs, talk about how the pandemic has affected the sustainability discussion, which have been the biggest changes in sustainability work over the years, and which sustainability trends we should keep an eye on in the future.

Taste is the key to change

Sustainability is embedded in our culture. As a family-owned company we take responsibility for the future generations. Our sustainability approach is reflected not only in our product portfolio, but in everything we plan to do today and in the future. 
 
Our role as an international food & beverage company is to offer new flavours and inspire consumers with more sustainable choices that do not compromise taste or convenience. We can be a small but significant force in transforming the food culture and with our new ambitious approach we want to accelerate our sustainability work. We strongly believe the whole industry should do the same and we invite others to join us on this journey. 

By 2030: Towards more sustainable and healthier products that taste good 

Paulig Sustainability Approach 2030 is based on three prioritised United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: Decent Work and Economic Growth (SDG 8), Responsible Consumption and Production (SDG 12) and Climate Action (SDG 13). Paulig will contribute to the achievement of these SDGs by focusing on three areas with high ambition: 

1. Products and services which enable the health and well-being of people and the planet 
2. Climate action and circularity 
3. Fair and inclusive way of working
