Our focus areas: our operations

We are cutting carbon emissions in our operations, making them more energy-efficient, and using resources such as water in more circular ways to reduce the impact of serving our customers.

Focusing on climate change 

Climate change poses a material risk to our businesses and their supply chains. Our Sugar and Grocery businesses are the most significant contributors to ABF total Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions. We support policies that align with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.

Making finite resources go further

We have a long history of finding ways to make more from less and to maximise by-products and co-products from our operations. We believe that waste materials are simply products for which we have not yet found a use.
