In what ways is Hormel Foods working on reducing their impact on the planet?

Our belief is that good business and good stewardship go hand in hand. Given our role in helping to feed America and the world for over 125 years, we know that building social value and creating economic value are not competing goals.

We are committed to achieving the following environmental goals by 2020:

  • Reduce nonrenewable energy use by 10 percent;
  • Reduce water use by 10 percent;
  • Reduce solid waste sent to landfills by 10 percent;
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 10 percent; and
  • Reduce 25 million pounds of product packaging.
