Segment ranking summary

Kraft Heinz ranks 45th among its peers. Thanks to its commitment to transition its portfolio towards healthy foods, the company outperforms many of its peers in increasing the availability of healthy foods. Its sustainability strategy covers all three dimensions of the benchmark (environment, nutrition and social inclusion) and includes targets for the company’s most relevant issues. However, the company performs below average relative to its peers on environment, mostly due to a poor climate mitigation strategy and food waste strategy. While Kraft Heinz shows efforts to protect human rights, it underperforms on social inclusion indicators, especially regarding farmer productivity support.
