Reduce waste to landfill intensity by 20% across our manufacturing facilities by 2025 (per metric ton of product made).

ON TRACK: -6%

Waste Reduction

At Kraft Heinz, we think about waste holistically. To source, 生产和包装食品和饮料产品需要与原料和副产品相关的投入和产出, material flows and end-of-life package considerations.

When we think about materials and food-related flows, detailed waste evaluations help us identify where we can ‘reduce, repurpose and recycle.’ In fact, 我们在全球拥有的生产基地将超过90%的固体废物用于回收或副产品使用. 我们期望对剩下的不足10%的垃圾进行更多的转移.

As of December 31, 2020, 大约10%的ag真人APP全球生产设施已经达到零垃圾填埋的状态. We’re working to achieve zero-waste at additional sites by standardizing, 通过与第三方服务提供商的合作,在我们的网络中尽可能广泛地复制和推广这些最佳实践.

我们致力于寻找创造性的解决方案,以减少运往填埋场的废物. Much of our organic waste or byproducts, for example, can be used as animal feed, fertilizer or processed to generate fuels. Our cardboard and plastic waste can also be repurposed to produce new products. For our most challenging waste categories, 我们正在积极地寻找有关软热解和其他创新回收方法的发展.

例如,我们的上海制造工厂发现了一种新的方法来转移垃圾填埋. 污水处理过程中常见的副产品是一种生物污泥. The facility produced approximately 250 – 300 tons of this sludge each year. 不幸的是,这些污泥不容易回收,而且处理成本很高. 该团队随后找到了一家当地的蚯蚓养殖公司,该公司可以将生物污泥转化为有机肥料. The organic fertilizer is sold to farmers for usage in fruit and vegetable farms. Through this program, 该基地大大减少了他们的垃圾填埋,同时降低了总垃圾成本高达40%.


Improved Recycling at Mont-Royal

In 2020, 我们在加拿大蒙特罗亚尔生产基地的员工帮助开发和实施了我们每条生产线上的材料分类系统的全面检修. 我们能够提高回收材料的比例,并更好地隔离它们. 这减少了污染,否则会导致可回收物被填埋. 我们实现了每年减少10%送往蒙特罗亚尔垃圾填埋场的垃圾量. Moreover, we have reached an 83 percent recycle rate.

Reducing Food Waste

Food waste is a global problem. Globally, 1.每年有30亿吨粮食被浪费,约占全球总产量的三分之一. That is approximately 2.2万亿顿饭可以养活全世界近8亿饥饿人口. Beyond this, food waste is detrimental to our environment, leading to wasted resources like energy, water and land. And as our population grows, the pressure on our water, land and energy to feed all those people will only increase.

Therefore, when we think of food waste at Kraft Heinz, we think of it in terms of our highest priorities. We focus on the entire value chain in terms of where food waste can be reduced. 这包括采购,生产,运输,保质期,使用和寿命结束. We analyze and test how processes, products and packaging can be optimized. 我们调查哪些地方不需要的副产品或不需要的成品可以找到其他用途,而不是去填埋, such as beneficial land application and product donations to those in need.

In 2020 amidst the global pandemic, 我们认识到我们有责任在这个世界上有需要的时候以我们所能采取的任何方式作出反应. We optimized our donation strategy and response times, and successfully increased our total food donations, 到2020年,为全世界有需要的人提供了3500多万顿饭. We achieved this through greater focus, 纪律和我们的所有者文化遍布我们的员工基础, which empowered employees to decisively and quickly act as needs arose. Moreover, key components of this program included:

  • 结合有关更新产品代码日期信息的额外责任,以增加可捐赠的寿命
  • 更频繁地分析仓库数据,以优化可能被转移到捐赠的产品
  • 增加与合作伙伴的接触,以寻找新的销售渠道,确保产品以最佳形式捐赠,并在必要时重新贴标签或包装
  • Working with our retail and food service customers to increase donations, learn best practices, and share in the mission to decrease food waste

ag真人APP与业内同行联手,在全球范围内消除食物浪费. ag真人APP加拿大公司和ag真人APP英国公司都加入了减少食物浪费的国家承诺.

U.K.: In the U.K., Kraft Heinz joined the Food Waste Reduction Roadmap (FWRR) initiative. 超过100个食品相关组织承诺支持这一倡议, which aims to reduce food waste in the U.K. by 50 percent by 2030. 该计划由IGD(食品研究和培训机构)和WRAP(关注可持续发展的非营利组织)共同发起,以验证数据并鼓励最佳做法. ag真人APP承诺为我们自己的业务设定一个减少食物浪费的目标,以实现更广泛的目标, and to also work in partnership with suppliers and consumers to that end. WRAP committed to report results in 2019, 2022, 2026 and issue a final report in 2031 against the 50 percent reduction goal.

Canada: In Canada, ag真人APP与其他七家公司共同承诺,到2025年将食品浪费减少50%. 我们在实现这一雄心勃勃的目标方面的集体进展将每年向加拿大国家零废物委员会和供应联盟报告. ag真人APP将使用全球公认的粮食损失和浪费会计和报告标准来报告我们的年度进展.

In 2020, ag真人APP加拿大公司还与北极星回收公司合作进行回收和废物分流工作. This initiative was launched mid-2020, 在短短6个月内,我们成功地从垃圾填埋场转移了大约300万磅的垃圾. We were also able to incorporate beneficial alternative uses wherever feasible, such as composting and animal feed.


Getting More out of Mayo

Our Nova Goias facility in Brazil is a key producer of Heinz and Quero mayonnaise for the region. In 2020, 该网站创建了一种方法来捕获和转移无法销售的产品给第三方设施,以便进行有益的重用. At this facility, 蛋黄酱经过加工,从中提取油脂,然后转化成生物柴油. Any leftover residue is also used to produce animal feed. 因此,该基地每年成功地减少了大约9%的废物. In the future, 我们希望扩大这个项目,包括不同的产品线,并进一步转移垃圾填埋.
