Grupo Bimbo has announced its commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. This commitment considers emissions for its entire value chain, covering all scopes across all activities. By doing this, Grupo Bimbo has become the first Mexican food company to commit to the Business Ambition for 1.5 °C and join the United Nation’s Race to Zero Campaign with goals established and validated by the Science Based Targets initiative.
The roadmap toward Grupo Bimbo’s new commitment has been carefully defined. Building on initiatives that have directed Grupo Bimbo toward cleaner energy for years now, it includes transitioning to 100% renewable energy, moving to lower carbon logistics and vehicles, implementing energy-efficiency strategies, and supporting suppliers and partners in reducing their emissions through technological innovation. Grupo Bimbo will also include neutralization actions through reforestation and carbon sequestration measures aligned with its regenerative agriculture initiative.
The new commitment includes three intermediate global goals defined on the path toward net zero carbon: eliminating Scope 2 by 2025 and reducing 50% of Scope 1 and 28% of Scope 3 by 2030.
