We are committed to protecting our environment through responsibly managing natural resources.
Respect for Resources
Undertaking sustainable practices on land and in the sea is key to the way we operate and is reflected by one of our core values ‘Respect for Resources.’
We work in close partnership with our customers and supplier partners to find new, and more sustainable ways to produce more with less and and create products that meet the needs and expectations of consumers.
Our Commitments: 4 Sight 2030 Goals
Reduce energy use by 15% per tonne of product
Reduce freshwater intake 15% per tonne of product
Reduce carbon emissions by 20% per tonne of product
Zero waste to landfill in our food processing plants
Our commitment to sustainability means we are constantly looking for new ways to produce more with less of our Earth's resources as we believe this is good for our business and simply the right thing to do.
For us, sustainability goes far beyond simply establishing a company recycling program, or turning off the lights when everyone goes home. It comprises a vision to meet the economic, environmental and social needs of our employees and communities while preserving the opportunity for future generations to do the same.
At Simplot, we work hard to provide more plentiful, healthier food using fewer resources and are focused on limiting waste. In 2020, as a global organisation we committed to our 4Sight 2030 goals. Over a 10-year period, we are undertaking activities to advance these goals.
