We are committed to improving sustainability across our value chain - working to reduce impact through our climate ambition goals, sustainable sourcing initiatives and water stewardship program.

The areas of greatest environmental impact in our supply chain – including more than two-thirds of GHG emissions and 99 percent of water use – occur outside General Mills’ operations, primarily in agriculture.

Our sustainability metrics

Across our global operations, we focus on reducing our GHG emissions and natural resource consumption. We also advance responsible sourcing practices that respect human rights and protect animal welfare.

Our approach provides details about our performance, including key performance drivers.

We remain focused on continuous improvement processes in all of these areas and have established several new targets for 2020 and beyond.
