Target: Kelloggs CEO John Bryant, General Mills CEO Ken Powell
Goal: Thank Kelloggs and General Mills for efforts to combat global warming
Two food industry giants, Kelloggs and General Mills have both recently announced plans to reduce emissions that contribute to climate change. This is one of history’s most tremendous steps in fighting global warming and deserves high praise.
Just three months ago, a report was published by advocacy group Oxfam which listed both Kelloggs and General Mills as among the ten companies for contributing to global warming the most, and making no efforts to prevent it. If these ten polluting companies combined all of their emissions, they could be considered the 25th most polluting country in the world. Kelloggs and General Mills were even considered a couple of the worst of the ten, so their new efforts are a significant transformation from just a few months ago.
This improvement comes after hundreds of thousands of people signed petitions asking that Kelloggs and General Mills become more responsible when it comes to the environment. Both companies are striving to improve their negative effects on the environment and are already setting reduction targets for all of their supply networks.
The initiatives these companies are setting are especially significant in that the prominence of these companies will surely influence others to follow in their footsteps of positive action. This could start a trend of corporations setting goals, or even competing to be more environmentally friendly.
Please sign the petition below to thank Kelloggs and General Mills for their noble efforts to have minimal harm on the environment:
Dear John Bryant and Ken Powell,
