BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — Kellogg's said that nearly half of its facilities worldwide send 5% or less of waste they generate to landfill, an achievement announced in the company's third global corporate responsibility report.
The company, which released the report on Earth Day, said its reduction in waste sent to landfill was achieved through diligent efforts at each of its facilities, in addition to increased partnerships with recyclers. Overall, Kellogg's has reduced its waste sent to landfill by 51% since 2005, keeping the company on track with its 2015 goal.
"Our waste initiatives are just one example of how we continue to make good progress toward our environmental goals," said Celeste Clark, Kellogg's chief sustainability officer and SVP global public policy and external relations. "In addition to these efforts, we're also making advancements in our other corporate responsibility areas. In the marketplace, we continue to improve the nutrition credentials of our products, and we're also working to build stronger communities by providing essential nutrition to children worldwide through a variety of breakfast programs."
