PepsiCo joins Nestlé and Danone in NaturALL Bottle Alliance | Peter Milsom's Change Delivery Consulting | Scoop.it

PepsiCo has joined the NaturaALL Bottle Alliance, a research consortium that hopes to develop bottles and packaging made with 100% sustainable and renewable resources. The research consortium was founded in 2017 by Danone, Nestlé Waters and bio-based materials development company Origin Materials.
PepsiCo, the world’s second-largest food and beverage company, said that its R&D capabilities will help the alliance realise this goal.
“Through our Performance with Purpose agenda, PepsiCo is committed to reducing the carbon impact of packaging in line with our goal to reduce absolute emissions of greenhouse gases by 20% by 2030; bio-based PET has the potential to reduce significantly the carbon footprint of our PET bottles, a huge contribution to our efforts in this area,” said Mehmood Khan, PepsiCo Vice Chairman and Chief Scientific Officer.

Walmart Canada planning to use all alternative-power semis | Peter Milsom's Change Delivery Consulting | Scoop.it

Walmart Canada is hoping to reduce its carbon footprint and taking a big step in the right direction, but it could be a while before that’s visible in Cornwall. The company recently announced it was planning on making its whole fleet of trucks powered by alternative power by 2028. The move makes Walmart Canada the company with the largest electrified fleet in Canada and reaches an initial milestone to convert 20 per cent of its fleet to electric power by 2022. “We are always looking for innovative ways to minimize our impact on the environment and lead the industry in the drive for sustainable change,” said John Bayliss, senior vice-president, logistics and supply chain in a press release. “By converting 20 per cent of our fleet to electric vehicles by 2022 and committing to alternative power for all fleet vehicles by 2028, we are putting safety, innovation and sustainability at the forefront of our logistics network.”

Great initiative by Walmart in order to be more sustainable. There are multiple international and European initiatives looking to curb carbon emissions, including the Paris Agreements and European Council’s commitment to a 40 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

Bold move by Kraft-Heinz concerning its sustainability agenda. SBT or Science-Based targets are Greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets. By setting that type of targets, companies make sure that their emissions reduction efforts are aligned on such scenario and better help curbing climate change.

AB InBev: How the world’s biggest beer company is going green 

AB InBev: How the world’s biggest beer company is going green  | Peter Milsom's Change Delivery Consulting | Scoop.it

AB InBev is undergoing what you could call a ‘sustainable renaissance’. Earlier this year, the beer giant unveiled its ambitious sustainability goals for 2025, channelling a forward-thinking vision that hopes to promote high environmental standards and help local communities thrive. As part this plan, AB InBev is championing four key principles; smart agriculture, water stewardship, circular packaging and climate action, and perhaps nowhere is this more evident than at its operations in Africa.

Raising the bar on sustainable consumption

Raising the bar on sustainable consumption | Peter Milsom's Change Delivery Consulting | Scoop.it

The world is in bad need of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the United Nations (UN) blueprint for a more prosperous and resilient world. There can be few among us who are not aware of the sometimes immeasurable and potentially catastrophic damage to the environment caused by carbon dioxide emissions, pollution from coal-fired power stations, the plastic waste clogging our oceans and killing marine animals, deforestation, the melting Arctic ice, climate change, urbanization – the list goes on. These problems are economic as well as environmental and pose a huge threat to our future well-being. According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report 2018, despite an improved economic background, with recent signs of “encouraging” global growth, there is no room for complacency. The report raises concerns in particular about the economic impact of the new technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and the lack of progress in protecting the environment. ISO 20400 has to be implemented across the world and integrated into increasingly complex organizations globally. Effective promotion of the standard, particularly in terms of country context, is the best way to meet this challenge.

Removing Child Labor, Deforestation, and Poverty from the Cost of Chocolate

Removing Child Labor, Deforestation, and Poverty from the Cost of Chocolate | Peter Milsom's Change Delivery Consulting | Scoop.it

A 2017 investigative report published by the NGO Mighty Earth informed the industry at-large about the enormous problem of deforestation. The report focused on Ghana and Ivory Coast, the world’s two largest cocoa producing countries, who grew and exported 2.3 million metric tons — or 52 percent — of the world’s cocoa in 2016. Ghana and Ivory Coast have lost around 90 percent of their forests, one third of that for cocoa. Less than 11 percent of Ivory Coast remains forested. Satellite maps from 1990-2015 show the dramatic impact of deforestation on this country, where now only 200-400 elephants remain from an original population of hundreds of thousands. According to Mighty Earth, a single dark chocolate bar made with cocoa derived from deforested areas produces the same amount of carbon pollution as driving 4.9 miles in a car. Then try multiplying the impact by the billions of chocolate bars consumed by Americans alone each year.

Tackling food waste in the supply chain

Tackling food waste in the supply chain | Peter Milsom's Change Delivery Consulting | Scoop.it

Food waste statistics are easily misunderstood. Between all the stakeholders, consumers contribute the largest quantity of food waste — 27 million tons per year or 43% of the total, according to Refed, a U.S. nonprofit tasked with reducing food waste. That stat alone has led to educational campaigns and ugly produce delivery services encouraging consumers to waste less​ and change the way they think about fresh produce. But a recent analysis by the Boston Consulting Group determined the role of private sector companies is the "most critical" in the fight against food waste. Supply chain infrastructure and efficiency alone could reduce the amount of food wasted by $270 billion (in value) of what the report estimates to be a $1.5 trillion problem by 2050.

A circular economy could bring 2 million jobs by 2030 and up to €600 billion in savings per year. It has the potential to improve resource resilience and support significant waste reduction across the globe.
