Our goal is to pursue growth as a world-class dairy processor, while striving to minimize the environmental impacts of our activities.
Being environmentally responsible means that we are constantly looking at ways to improve our environmental performance.
Our efforts are underpinned by our Environmental Policy and overseen by our Environmental Committee, chaired by our Chief Executive Officer and composed of the President and Chief Operating Officer of the Company and of each of its Divisions, as well as the senior managers responsible for environmental matters. Our manufacturing facilities manage their environmental impact with support from divisional environmental teams that conduct regular audits to ensure compliance with our environmental standards.
In FY2019, we set up a global committee to review our current environmental management system based on the ISO approach, leveraging expertise from each Division and best practices from newly acquired businesses, such as Dairy Crest in the UK. We continued to take numerous measures to pursue environmentally responsible business practices and maintained our commitment to seeking continuous improvement in our environmental performance related to greenhouse gas emissions, energy, water and waste.
