We love to recognize companies and technology that help reduce Greenhouse Gases and Solid Waste, along with other eco-friendly policies. Today, we want to congratulate and recognize ConAgra Foods for committing to a range of sustainability goals.
ConAgra Foods is definitely stepping up to the challenge. They have just announce five aggressive sustainability goals, buliding on successful achievement of their goals set in 1992.
Along with reducing Greenhouse gas emissions, water use and more, ConAgra Foods has set a goal of diverting solid waste sent to landfills by 75% in 2015, compared to 2011. So, they will reduce what is sent to landfills down to 1/4 of the amount they'll send next year.
“Because our food is part of the lives of millions of consumers each day, ConAgra Foods has a critical responsibility to create positive environmental change. We can do that by making our food—such as Healthy Choice® meals, Orville Redenbacher’s® popcorn and Hunt’s® tomatoes—in the most sustainable and efficient way possible”
