Kellogg Company has been selected for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, an independent validation of the important work the company is doing in the area of corporate responsibility. The DJSI serves as a benchmark for investors who recognize sustainable business practices as a critical component to generating long-term shareholder value. Through environmental, social, governmental and ethical-centered efforts, Kellogg has earned its spot in the United States and globally, as one of the best-in-class corporations for sustainable business practices.

John Bryant, Chairman and CEO of Kellogg Company, says: “This recognition reflects the tremendous work we have done in the areas of governance, environmental sustainability, and giving back to our communities. We pride ourselves in our ability to deliver for the business while being a company with a heart and soul, and living our founder’s values.”

Clive Sirkin, Chief Growth Officer, adds: “Being recognized for our leadership with DJSI reinforces to investors that our foods and brands are driving sustainability while delivering growth for the company. Kellogg is excelling in supporting nutrition, environmental and social initiatives with innovations like Ragi Chocos in India, partnerships with retailers like Walmart on sustainable agriculture, and our continued efforts through Breakfasts for Better Days, our signature cause platform.”

Launched in 1999, the DJSI World Index is the first global index to track and rate companies on a variety of environmental, social and governance factors. A cumulative score determines inclusion in the DJSI.

In this year’s survey, Kellogg received high scores for its work in improving access and nutrition, environmental sustainability, and philanthropy. Progress in these areas include:

  • Expanding the product portfolio to address hidden hunger by increasing affordability and access in emerging markets.
  • Continuing industry leadership on diversity and inclusion in the company and beyond.
  • Progressing on the company’s Science Based Targets on emissions for its global footprint, including the supply chain; to date, Kellogg has engaged 60 percent of its supplier spend on emissions reporting.
  • Kellogg is reaching 294,000 farmers through programs, research and technical assistance focused on climate smart agriculture.
  • Kellogg was one of the first U.S.-based companies to join Champions 12.3 and to become a U.S. Food Loss and Waste champion.
  • Creating 3 billion better days through Kellogg’s Breakfasts for Better Days signature cause platform.
