Four Danone brands have committed to reaching net-zero carbon emission in the coming years: Evian in 2020; Lanjarón and Volvic by 2025 and Font Vella by 2030.
As a global food and beverage company, Danone recognizes the urgency of the climate challenge, and its brands are responding by taking tangible action, with commitments to accelerate their journey towards a balanced footprint of zero net carbon emissions.
Within the Danone Waters division, four major brands have already committed to reaching net-zero carbon emission in the coming years: Evian by 2020, Lanjarón and Volvic by 2025 and Font Vella by 2030. In the frame of the UN Climate Change Conference, COP25, currently taking place in Madrid, three more Danone subsidiaries have now added their own commitments: as B-Corp certified companies, they have become co-signatories of the B-Lab pledge, which aims to accelerate the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, to reach a 1.5°C trajectory leading to net-zero by 2030.
Danone’s Chairman & CEO Emmanuel Faber declared: “I welcome and warmly support B- Lab’s leadership in responding to the climate emergency. With the signature of this pledge, Danone is now building further on the pioneering commitments from brands like Evian in the U.S. and Germany; Lanjarón, Font Vella in Spain and Volvic in Germany, to reach net-zero carbon emission. And we will not stop there. In line with our ‘One Planet. One Health’ ambition, we will continue to work individually and collectively to drive an industry-wide transition to a low-carbon economy. It is our most important responsibility, to help prepare a sustainable future for the next generation, and the ones that will follow.
These initiatives connect with Danone’s ambition to become a Certified B CorpTM globally by 2030, ‘using business as a force for good’ to create sustainable value for all and protecting our plane
