HelloFresh commits to science-based emission reduction targets

Recipe box retailer HelloFresh has used its 2022 non-financial report to announce a range of new targets for reducing emissions.

The publication highlights the company’s progress in further decreasing its environmental impact and presents new goals for cutting carbon emissions and food waste by 2025.

Adam Park, UK chief executive at HelloFresh, said: “We recognise the important contribution we can and must make in driving sustainable progress on environmental and social issues. Setting ourselves science-based targets means we are committed to doing our part for the environment to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees or less, which marks a big milestone for HelloFresh.”

HelloFresh will also continue work to make its operations more energy efficient as it transitions to renewable energy. The share of green energy consumed in HelloFresh’s distribution centres and offices in 2022 increased to 53%, from 50% in 2021 and 35% in 2020.

The company has recently announced the trial launch of its own delivery fleet in the UK which will reduce the company’s environmental impact through the use of its own refrigerated vehicles. The fleet will also reduce van miles by removing current third-party delivery partners, to allow meal-kits to go straight from distribution centres to customer doorsteps.

In its most recent financial year, HelloFresh reduced carbon emissions from its production facilities by 50% and cut food waste sent to landfill or incineration by 42% globally.

The new targets will see the company aim to cut emissions at its meal kit production facilities by 66% per euro of revenue from a 2019 baseline by the end of 2025. It will also be looking to reduce food waste from the facilities by 52% per euro of revenue from a 2019 baseline by the same time.
