Creating a climate-positive future to reduce food insecurity


Creating Better Days for 3 Billion People by the End of 2030

Our founder, W.K. Kellogg, believed that part of running a good business was doing good for society. This promise has guided our company for over a century. And it remains our promise to create better days, and a good and just world, for years to come.

Kellogg’s Better Days® is our promise to advance sustainable and equitable access to food by addressing the intersection of wellbeing, hunger, sustainability, and equity, diversity and inclusion.

Kellogg's Better Days addresses the intersection of wellbeing, hunger, sustainability and equity, diversity and inclusion

Sustainability, hunger, wellbeing and equity, diversity and inclusion are all interconnected. Our changing climate is impacting the health of people and reducing crop yields, leading to greater food insecurity. Many diverse and underserved communities are disproportionally impacted by climate change and now face higher barriers to health and access to nutritious foods. And these same communities are most at risk for undernutrition, hidden hunger and obesity.

For these reasons, our Kellogg’s Better Days® Promise aims to:

  • Reduce absolute Scope 1 & 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 45% by the end of 2030.
  • Partner across our value chain to reduce absolute Scope 3 GHG emissions by 15% by the end of 2030.
  • Progress towards 100% renewable electricity in global Kellogg manufacturing facilities by the end of 2050.
  • Reduce water use in global Kellogg manufacturing facilities in high water stress regions by 30% by the end of 2030.
  • Reduce food waste across our global Kellogg-owned manufacturing facilities by 50% by the end of 2030.
  • Support farmers and agronomists globally, including women and smallholders.
  • Build resilient and responsible supply chains for our priority ingredients.
  • Work towards 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging (by volume).

Complete details on all the material topics and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals we are working toward via our Kellogg Better Days® Promise are included in the Reporting section of this website.
