June 09, 2021 9:27am
Tyson Foods has announced its plan to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across its global operations and supply chain by 2050.
The move to net zero is an expansion of the company's current science-based target of achieving a 30-percent greenhouse gas emissions reduction by 2030, which is aligned with limiting global temperature rise to two-degrees celsius.
Tyson's plan includes updating the baseline for emissions to align with limiting global temperature rise to 1.5-degrees celsius consistent with the Paris Agreement by the end of 2023...and establishing a pathway to using 50-percent renewable energy across its domestic operations by 2030...and completing an initial land stewardship target of engaging two-million feed acres and expanding the total acres by 2025, including a total target of 100-percent of feed purchased by 2030.
Tyson's new ambition, along with the company's existing sustainability goals, is aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Tyson Foods has 239 facilities and 139-thousand employees worldwide, including pork and poultry plants in Storm Lake.
