Kerry Group has joined RE100, an initiative led by the Climate Group in partnership with CDP, to bring together the world’s most influential companies committed to100% renewable electricity.
This is a result of the taste and nutrition company’s recent commitment to source 100% renewable electricity across its operations by 2025.
Kerry recently launched its ‘Beyond the Horizon’ sustainably strategy where it announced that it aims to reach over two billion people with sustainable nutrition solutions by 2030.
The target to source 100% renewable energy is part of the Group’s commitment on climate action which includes a science-based target for the reduction of operational emissions by 33% by 2030 and to reach net zero emissions before 2050.
“Our vision is to be our customers most valued partner, creating a world of sustainable nutrition and today’s commitment is a part of this journey,” said Juan Aguiriano, Group Head of Sustainability.
“The scale of the challenge to address the growing climate crisis cannot be underestimated and requires a concerted global effort from all parts of society.
“The commitment to using 100% renewable electricity will have an immediate impact and will reduce our footprint by over one million tonnes of carbon between now and 2025, helping us meet our goal of net zero emissions before 2050.”
To achieve its renewable electricity target, Kerry will utilise a diversified portfolio of solutions globally, to support its transition and broader goal of net zero carbon.
