Maple Leaf Foods, Inc. has released its 2019 Sustainability Report, which details its key programs and achievements for the past year, as well as future initiatives and priorities. Last year, Maple Leaf Foods continued its commitment to sustainability and became the world’s first carbon neutral major food company, in large part by aggressively reducing greenhouse gas emissions and investing in high-impact environmental projects to offset emissions that could not be reduced. The company has science-based targets, in alignment with the goals of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, which require it to continue to reduce its emissions as the company grows and will help identify opportunities to meet the Maple Leaf’s goal of reducing its environmental footprint by 50% by 2025.
