Climate and nature

The aim of our climate and nature work is to respect planetary boundaries by minimising negative and maximising positive impacts on climate and nature.

Kesko is committed to supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in its operations. We have identified the SDGs that are most material for us in accordance with our sustainability strategy. In our climate and nature work, the key goals for Kesko and its stakeholders include Responsible Consumption and Production, Climate Action and Life on Land.

Our key goals:

  • We commit to setting long-term emissions reductions targets and to reduce emissions in the whole value chain to net zero by the year 2050.
  • We encourage our suppliers and service providers to set science-based emissions reductions targets by the end of 2026.
  • We reduce emissions from the use of sold products by the end of 2026.
    We create a biodiversity roadmap and set goals for our biodiversity impacts in our own operations and the value chain.
  • We introduce sustainable packaging for our own brand products by the end of 2025.
  • We halve our food waste by 2030.
