Greggs marks significant progress in its sustainability journey with The Greggs Pledge update

Greggs today announced the publication of its fourth annual sustainability report, illuminating the substantial progress the company has made towards its 2025 sustainability targets and defining its focus for the upcoming year.

Now three years into its five-year sustainability plan, Greggs has successfully achieved significant milestones across its ten commitments, reflecting its deep commitment to environmental stewardship and community welfare.

The report highlights several key achievements, including the operation of 896 Greggs Foundation Breakfast Clubs, which provide meals to over 62,000 children every school day. Furthermore, nearly £650,000 of profits from Greggs Outlets have been allocated to the Greggs Foundation Community Grant programme, assisting communities in need. Environmental efforts have also seen notable success, with 97.1% of the company’s electricity usage now sourced from renewable energies.

Roisin Currie, Chief Executive at Greggs, expressed her delight at the company’s achievements, particularly praising the surpassing of healthier product range targets and the early establishment of responsible sourcing policies. Currie emphasised Greggs’ ongoing commitment to setting ambitious goals, focusing on sustainable and regenerative agriculture to combat biodiversity loss and promoting a positive change across its supply chain.

Looking ahead to 2024, Greggs has set clear objectives to further its sustainability mission. These include expanding the number of Breakfast Clubs, reducing food waste, increasing the availability of affordable food through Outlet shops, maintaining a ‘Healthier Choice’ product range, progressing towards Net Zero targets, reducing packaging, ensuring workforce diversity, enhancing responsible sourcing practices, and improving animal welfare standards in line with the BBFAW Animal Welfare standard.

Currie highlighted that the Pledge is not only a reflection of Greggs’ commitment to ‘doing good’ but also a source of pride among colleagues, reinforcing the company’s dedication to making a lasting impact on both the community and the planet.
