Kellogg Company has again been named to the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability World and North American indices (DJSI World/DJSI North American) of companies recognized for their sustainable business practices. Companies included on the indices must exhibit best-in-class performance against a wide variety of environmental, social, and governance metrics that are critical for generating long-term share owner value.

“This independent validation of our corporate responsibility commitments reinforces our belief that being a responsible corporate citizen is paramount to our company’s growth,” says Kris Charles, Kellogg Company Senior Vice President, Global Corporate Affairs. “As a leading global food company, we’re living our founder’s values by addressing the worldwide issue of food security through our integrated commitments in nutrition, hunger relief and sustainability.”

In this year’s survey, Kellogg received high scores for nourishing with its foods, feeding people in need, nurturing the planet and living its founder’s values.

Specifically, the company has:

  • Continued to improve the nutrition profile of its foods
  • In 2017, donated nearly 570 million servings of food to people in need through food banks, breakfasts clubs and disaster relief on six continents through its Breakfasts for Better Days™ global signature cause platform
  • Reduced our company’s emissions by 13.6 percent since 2015 and engaged 65 percent of suppliers to report their emissions
  • Supported more than 300,000 farmers, their families and farming communities
  • Assessed and supported human rights across its own operations and its supply chain
  • Been recognized by DiversityInc as a top 50 company for diversity and celebrated 20 years of supplier diversity

Additionally, Kellogg was one of the first companies to report on its progress against the Provisional Standards of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and is a member of SASB’s Sector Advisory Group (SAG).

Launched in 1999, the DJSI indices represent the gold standard for corporate sustainability. It is the first global index to track the leading sustainability-driven companies on approximately 600 environmental, social and governance factors.
