United Natural Foods has announced it will work toward achieving a net-zero economy by setting science-based emissions reduction targets covering its operations and value chain. Its targets will align with the goals of the Paris Agreement to limit global temperature rise to below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels and limit global warming to 1.5 °C. UNFI is the first North American wholesale grocery distributor to commit to such a target.

The new UNFI targets are central to the company’s upcoming 2030 Environmental, Social, and Governance agenda, which includes commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase resilience through investments in clean energy.
