Hershey is committed to a traceable and sustainable palm oil supply chain with no deforestation, no peatland development and no exploitation of workers. When sustainably grown, palm oil can reduce pressure on forests and biodiversity and support smallholder farmers.
How Hershey's strategy drives change for cocoa-growing environments and cocoa-farming communities.
The Hershey Company — which has achieved a commitment to source 100% certified and sustainable cocoa by 2020 — has been committed since 2018 to no new deforestation in its global cocoa supply chain. It is committed to tackling child labor issues by supporting the implementation of Child Labor Monitoring and Remediation Systems (CLMRS)* coverage to 100% of its sourcing in Ivory Coast and Ghana, a high-risk area, by 2025.
The Hershey Company has announced new commitments to advance its environmental progress and contribute to global climate action. Hershey has set ambitious new goals to reduce its global emissions in line with the global best practice of the Paris Climate Agreement, to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C.
