Moy Park has had its commitment to achieving net zero emissions validated by a consortium of organisations known as the SBTi.
The SBTi is a collaboration between the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). It defines and promotes best practice in emissions reductions and net zero targets in line with climate science.
The company has committed to achieve net-zero GHG emissions by 2040, and has adopted several strategies to reduce emissions, including:
- Investing in emissions reduction projects in Moy Park owned facilities.
- Invest in research and development projects to assist producer efforts to strengthen and scale regenerative farming practices.
- Have 100% renewable electricity across facilities by 2025.
- Reduce water use intensity by 15% by 2030 vs. 2019 baseline.
Kirsty Wilkins, HR & Performance Director at Moy Park said: “Our journey to net zero began over a decade to go and we continue with earnest to build on our planned innovations and strategies in our key areas of emissions, energy, water, biodiversity and waste, to grow food sustainably and minimise our environmental impact.”
“Having our net zero targets certified by the SBTi means that we can successfully convert ambition into action and help protect our communities and the environment for generations to come. We are collaborating closely with stakeholders right across the food supply chain to enact improved practices and reduce emissions, collectively driving change to make a meaningful difference.”
