Total environmental protection expenditures and investments by type.
Hormel Foods places great emphasis on environmental considerations when producing the products made for our customers. Sustainability and environmental responsibility continue to serve as our guiding principles as they have for 125 years, since George A. Hormel founded Hormel Foods.
Our goals are established on a target to implement projects that provide absolute reductions equaling 10 percent of our base year level. To help meet these environmental goals across the company, we invest in our facilities and establish specific metrics to improve the efficiency of our operations. As we report our goal progress, we will continue to report normalized results.
