Danone announces that it has been recognized, for the fifth year in a row, for leadership in corporate transparency and performance in climate change, forests, and water security by global environmental non-profit organization CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project).
Danone recognized for the fifth year in a row as global environmental leader with triple ‘A’ score given by CDP
Out of the 21,000 companies scored in 2023, Danone is one of the only 10 companies that achieved a place on the A List for the three environmental areas covered by CDP: climate change, forest preservation and water security.

Being included once again this year in this A list for each of the three areas is a strong recognition of Danone’s environmental actions, and progress towards its ambition of reaching net-zero emissions across its full value chain by 2050.

In 2023, Danone has continued to strengthen its sustainability roadmap, the Danone Impact Journey, taking bold commitments on reducing methane emissions by 30% by 20301 for its fresh milk supply, while supporting the acceleration of food system transformation through the scale-up of regenerative agricultural practices that benefit carbon sequestration in soil, biodiversity, and optimized use of water resources.

In 2023, Danone was one of the first companies to include Forest, Land and Agriculture (FLAG) emissions in its 1.5°C GHG reduction targets, and to have them approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Moving forward in its strategy to reduce by 35% its emissions by 2030, Danone has recently published its Climate Transition Plan, defining a concrete roadmap for decarbonizing its activities across its value chain and putting the company on the pathway to reach Net-Zero emissions by 2050, aligned on 1.5°C trajectory.

In 2023, Danone also celebrated 25 years of partnership with the Ramsar Convention, acting for the protection of wetlands which play a key role in climate change mitigation.
