At Campbell, our purpose is connecting people through food they love. This purpose is what brings us together and is at the heart of everything we do as a company. It shapes our relationships, our food, and the positive impact we aim to have on the world.
To deliver on the promise of this purpose, we’re taking a more holistic approach to corporate responsibility. We have prioritized environmental, social and governance (ESG) areas that are important to our company and our stakeholders. These are areas where we believe we can make a measurable impact. We’ve organized this focus into four key pillars–trusted food, vibrant communities, thriving people, and a healthy environment–and our governance and ethics practices support it all.
Let’s explore what these four pillars mean:
Food that people love is food they can trust. It’s food that is delicious, nutritious, and accessible–food that people rely on and feel good about eating. These are the principles on which our company was founded, and they continue to guide us today. The best food, at the best price, for the most people.
Food that people love supports vibrant communities. That’s why we strive to leave a legacy of impact in the communities where we live, work and source our ingredients.
Food that people love comes from a company where all employees can be real, and feel safe, valued, and supported to do their best work. That’s why we’re focused on building a winning team and culture that fosters an inclusive and diverse workplace where all employees are empowered to thrive.
Food that people love helps support a healthy environment. That’s why we’re working to create a sustainable future for generations to come. As a food company, we can make a meaningful impact in many ways. We intend to make all our packaging recyclable. We are also reducing food waste and working with suppliers on more sustainable agricultural practices that nurture the land and improve soil health.
While many of these areas have been a priority for us for some time, we’re excited to share our new, more holistic approach. It enables us to be more strategic by creating multi-year action plans for each focus area with internal experts across the company so that the work is embedded right where it belongs. We will be using this framework for corporate reporting–you’ll see it reflected in our 2022 Corporate Responsibility report–and have just launched a new section on our site to share more about our impact.
Ultimately, we strive to build a resilient food system, making food that improves the world we share, for generations to come. We do this through our commitments to trusted food, vibrant communities, thriving people, and a healthy planet. We look forward to sharing our progress as this journey continues.
