Campbell Soup Company has released its 2012 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report, Nourishing, emphasising the company's integrated CSR approach to consumers, employees, the environment and community.
Denise Morrison, president and CEO, Campbell Soup Company, said: "CSR and sustainability can mean many things, but I have challenged our leadership team and employees to consider these concepts as intuitive elements of the way we work to drive engagement, innovation, community impact and business results.
"As we work to build a more innovative, balanced and responsive Campbell, I believe we also have the opportunity to become one of the most socially responsible consumer goods companies in the world."
Highlights from the report include:
- The construction of a 60-acre, 10-MW solar field at Campbell's largest manufacturing site in Napoleon, Ohio, where 24,000 sun-tracking panels generate 15% of the electricity to operate the plant. Additional sustainability investments across the company have yielded savings of $27.5m since 2009.
- The commitment of $10m over 10 years through the Campbell Healthy Communities initiative, a 25% increase in employee volunteer hours and in-kind donations that exceeded $40m.
- The addition of Facts Up Front icons on 45 Campbell products, voluntarily displaying calories, saturated fat, sodium and sugar per serving on the front of packaging, and the redesign of Campbell's nutrition and wellness website to enhance consumers' access to nutrition information.
- The introduction of The Way We Work, a new commitment to positively contribute to building a safe, diverse, inclusive, engaged and socially responsible workplace focused on delivering business results with integrity.
