Arnott's Group sets its sustainability agenda

The Arnott’s Group has set its sustainability agenda by releasing its first formal Sustainability Statement in the lead-up to World Environment Day on 5 June.

The company’s sustainability plan focuses on four key areas across the supply chain, through the sourcing of ingredients, the manufacturing of products and the connection with its people, customers and communities. The four key commitments are:

  1. Sustainable ingredients: Sustainably grow and source 100% of its key ingredients, namely flour, sugar, oils, dairy and cocoa products sustainably by 2035.
  2. Net-zero climate impact: Achieve net-zero emissions in operations by 2040, and across the value chain by 2050.
  3. Circular packaging: Reduce, reuse or repurpose 10% of the plastic packaging it uses by 2025 and meet the 2025 recyclability targets set by the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO).
  4. Thriving communities: Increase choice, opportunity and wellbeing by promoting inclusion and belonging, supporting communities and providing more diverse food options and guidance on nutrition.

The focus on sustainability is part of the Group’s business transformation, led by Chief Transformation Officer Simon Lowden.

“It’s timely that we set this direction for the business in the lead-up to the United Nations day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action to protect our environment,” Lowden said.

“The global food system is responsible for creating a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions. A more sustainable food system is vital for achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

“At The Arnott’s Group, we recognise that to build a more sustainable food system in Australia we must make change ourselves and inspire our consumers and our partners to do the same.
