1. Biodiversity and sustainable sourcing

The agriculture of tomorrow



Through its flagship global programme “Origins”, our member Kellogg has initiated more than 40 partnership projects around the world with suppliers, farmers, scientists and NGOs to increase farm productivity, improve environmental outcomes and positively impact farmer livelihoods. Kellogg already sources 100% of potatoes from European farms and in 2022, Kellogg has launched the first Origins programme with potato farmers in France and Belgium. The company is offering a carbon emission assessment to 10 farmers in France and Belgium, which will establish a benchmark for year-on-year verified carbon savings and generate carbon certificates that the farmers can sell on the voluntary carbon market. In the future, based on this assessment, farmers may get support to help decrease their carbon footprint while improving their productivity. In this programme, Kellogg is partnering with long-term potato flakes supplier, Clarebout, and Soil Capital, a society of independent agronomists working to help farmers adopt more sustainable and regenerative agriculture practices.



PepsiCo's Positive Agriculture agenda aims to source crops and ingredients in a way that accelerates regenerative agriculture and strengthens farming communities. PepsiCo’s efforts will focus on: •  Spreading the adoption of regenerative farming practices across 7 million acres, leading to a net-reduction of at least 3 million tons of GHG emissions by 2030 . Furthering nearly a decade of progress with its Sustainable Farming Program, PepsiCo will continue to collaborate with farmers across 60 countries to adopt practices that build resilience and improve and restore ecosystems. • Improving the livelihoods of more than 250,000 people in its agricultural supply chain and communities , including economically empowering women. •  Sustainably sourcing 100% of key ingredients , expanding to include not only its direct-sourced crops (potatoes or whole corn), but also key crops from third parties, such as vegetable oils and grains. PepsiCo sources crops across 60 countries and supports over 100,000 jobs in the agricultural supply chain. Already as of the end of 2020, PepsiCo's direct-sourced crops were 100% sustainably sourced in 28 countries.
