As part of this new development, Bord Bia has prepared comprehensive guidelines for companies to decarbonise their own operations and supply chains.
The advice on net-zero target setting and implementation is based on the United Nation’s “Measure, Reduce, Compensate” model, which encourages everyone in society to take action to help achieve a net-zero carbon economy by 2050.
The launch of the ‘Pathway to Net Zero’ project builds on several previous initiatives, such as the Origin Green Sustainability Charter.
That requires signatories to set and deliver on clear sustainability targets as part of their 5-year sustainability plans with a specific focus on raw material sourcing, manufacturing process and social sustainability.
Companies have set over 2,400 sustainability targets to date, reaffirming the industry’s commitment to continuous improvement.
