All Greencore packaging to be recyclable or reusable by 2025

1 March 2021

Greencore’s sustainability credentials are already well established, and the pledges build on the strong progress that the Group has made in this area in recent years. For example, since 2018 Greencore has reduced its energy consumption by 10%, reduced its water usage by 9%, and cut its total net Scope 1 & 2 carbon emissions by 39%. In the areas of community engagement and social responsibility, in 2020 alone the Group donated over 1.5 million meals to people in need, and also created over 1,300 new permanent roles for people that were previously on agency contracts.

Commenting on the new sustainability strategy, Patrick Coveney, Chief Executive Officer of Greencore, said:

“At Greencore, we are passionate about playing our part in building a fairer and more resilient food system for generations to come. We want to ensure that our actions and products make a real difference in improving people’s lives – whether it’s through the provision of tasty, healthier, affordable food, gainful employment or social development. The pledges that we have made reflect our long-term ambitions for sustainability, as well as our confidence that we can realise them.”
