    • Pledging that 33% of its suppliers by emissions covering purchased goods and services, upstream transportation and distribution will have science-based targets (SBTs) by 2027
  • Plastic: Eliminating unnecessary packaging by 2030, avoiding over-packaging and phasing out PVC. Ensure that we use a minimum of 20% recycled plastic content in plastic packaging by 2025
