Forever Chocolate considered top for sustainability strategy
Forever Chocolate, Barry Callebaut’s plan to make sustainable chocolate the norm, is considered the No. 1 sustainability strategy in the packaged foods industry. This is concluded by Sustainalytics after its annual assessment of 178 packaged food companies on the management of environmental, social and governance risks in their supply chains.
Sustainalytics is a company that assesses the sustainability approaches of listed companies. It looked at the efforts on reaching the Forever Chocolate targets, in addition to other social and governance (i.e. a corporate code of conduct, anti-corruption policy etc.) indicators, and ranks it against the efforts of other participating food companies. These types of assessments respond to a growing interest from investors and societal stakeholders to understand whether sustainability strategies are actually managing supply chain risks and delivering impact.
