Kerry recently launched its Beyond the Horizon sustainable 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.
Juan Aguiriano, group head of sustainability, said, “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. 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.”
Sam Kimmins, head of RE100 at the Climate Group, said, "We are delighted to welcome Kerry Group to RE100. By committing to 100% renewable electricity across their entire operations, they are demonstrating their leadership and sending a powerful message that renewables make business sense."
