Maple Leaf Foods becomes carbon neutral

Maple Leaf

Maple Leaf Foods Inc. has become the first major food company in the world to achieve carbon neutral status. Its accomplishment was predicated on reducing emissions by meeting Science Based Targets, which align global greenhouse gas emission reductions with the goals of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.

In an effort to bring its remaining carbon footprint to zero, Maple Leaf Foods is investing in environmental projects throughout Canada and the United States, which support wind energy, recovering methane gas from landfills, composting and biomass programs to reduce methane emissions, and forest protection and re-forestry to conserve species and biodiversity.
