Our ambition is to drive a more circular economy, with closed material flows. Our efforts are aimed at avoiding the waste of resources and the need to send wastes from our operations to landfills.

Objectives 2020:

  • Zero deforestation: in the supply chain for the use of palm oil, paper and pulp

  • Zero waste: reducing food waste by 50% (2016 baseline).
  • Reducing GHG emissions by 18% (2015 baseline).
  • Wastes

    • 73% progress in Mexico to achieve objective of generating zero waste.
    • 50% progress in Central America.
