Brown-Forman Corporation announced updated Global Sustainability Goals, including advancing sustainability, reducing the company’s environmental footprint and increasing its positive impact on the community and environment.
Brown-Forman’s Global Sustainability Goals broaden the company’s focus beyond owned-business operations to include its supply chain, where the majority of the company’s environmental footprint resides, and are centered around four pillars:
- Climate Action: Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
- Water Stewardship: Protect the health of key watersheds and create Net Positive Water Impact
- Circular Economy: Maintain zero waste and integrate circular economy principles
- Supply Chain: Reduce the environmental impact of our product packaging; Create a resilient and agile agricultural supply chain; Conserve existing hardwood forests
“We have a responsibility to care for our environment and protect the natural resources upon which our products depend, not only to strengthen our business, but also to contribute to the long-term health of our planet,” Lawson Whiting, CEO of Brown-Forman, said. “To elevate the importance of sustainability to Brown-Forman’s overall, long-term success, we’ve embedded these new goals into our business strategy and will continue to share our progress against them publicly.”
