Well aware of the urgency of the climate crisis, in 2021 we undertook our first ever CSR audit, As a result, shifted gears and ramped up our efforts, to push for greater and more effective climate action; helping curb carbon emissions and preserve Earth’s natural biodiversity by reining in global temperatures. To achieve this, we are taking a number of climate actions which include committing to net zero; working with value chain partners to encourage action for the planet and help transform the industry; and fostering biodiversity and protecting forests.
Today, our ecosystems and natural resources are under extreme pressure. Forests, crucial to our survival, are disappearing at alarming rates. Human-led deforestation affects wildlife and ecosystems with up to one million plants and animal species threatened by extinction. Without drastic action to conserve habitats, the rate of species extinction is set to increase. To prevent irreversible damage, we are playing our part to foster biodiversity and protect forests. We will invest in protecting ecosystems and local wildlife by investing in biodiversity improvements; foster carbon positive solutions through offsetting and eliminate unsustainable deforestation from our supply chain.
