At Kerry, we are mindful of our impact on the environment and recognise the fundamental importance of a healthy ecosystem for our shared future. In the creation of our products, Kerry’s operations impact the environment and our ability to successfully reduce this impact and address these environmental challenges is an essential part of retaining our licence to operate.
Kerry is commited to ongoing monitoring and reporting across all our sites and performance is under ongoing review by relevant functions and the Group’s Sustainability Council. Our key focus is on reducing carbon emissions, ensuring good water stewardship, and minimising our waste. Where we do create waste streams within our business, we look at how these can be diverted from landfill and used as a resource elsewhere.
Kerry is proud of our ongoing strong performance on environmental stewardship and we continue to pursue independent certification of best practice, with 86% of eligible sites certified under ISO 14001 and key energy users accredited under ISO 50001.
