Gerber has today become the first U.S. baby food company to announce its commitment to carbon neutral food products.
100% of Gerber's U.S. Organic portfolio and Natural pouches and glass jars are set to be carbon neutral in 2022. The company is also committed to carbon neutrality across its full U.S. baby food portfolio by 2035.
Gerber will reach carbon neutrality by implementing practices across several priority areas: regenerative agriculture, packaging, manufacturing and supply chain management, and recipe design, and by investing in high quality offsetting projects.
The carbon neutral pledge is part of Gerber's 'Climate Forward Nutrition' ambition to pioneer on-farm research and invest in regenerative agriculture techniques to ensure the ingredients for nutritious food for baby are produced in a way that increases biodiversity and soil health and reduces water usage.
Nestlé is building on a decade of action and has committed to halve its greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050.
