Intact forest landscapes, or vast stretches of unbroken forest, are important ecosystems.1 Yet, they are threatened. Between 2000 and 2020, the world’s intact forest landscapes decreased by 12% (155 hectares).1 As a global food company, we have a responsibility to engage our supply chain, suppliers and industry to drive faster, more effective action to combat deforestation. We have focused our deforestation-related efforts on palm oil, soy, and paper and pulp. These commodities have been identified through materiality assessments and stakeholder consultations as having significant social and environmental risk.
Though deforestation is a global issue, the solutions and actions to curb it must be regionally relevant. It is through this lens that we can accelerate our efforts to protect remaining forests, restore degraded areas and direct funding and investment to efforts that will provide the greatest impact. With this in mind, we are working toward nature-based solutions that consider environmental and social elements at the global and local level. We partner with suppliers, farmers, peers, customers, civil society, communities and governments to protect vulnerable, biodiverse areas and ecosystems.
All Kellanova timber-based packaging is recycled, certified sustainable, or low-risk, or comes from low-risk origins.
We know that these are steps in the right direction to achieve a forest positive future.
