One thought on “Kraft Sustainability VP Discusses Corporate Sustainability

  1. A great presentation from Mr. Yucknut, It sounds as though Kraft is headed in the right direction of sustainability. Also, Kraft’s understanding of land use is a great leap forward for the planets life line.

    But, what does Kraft do to sustain its construction renovation materials, and the behind the scenes, as Mr. Yucknut says, construction and hazardous waste. Does Kraft look for technologies that reduce and rid them of these wastes? Does Kraft look for technologies that rid them of hazardous wastes, such as asbestos?

    Kraft has enough facilities to concern itself about landfilling of construction and hazardous and asbestos waste. Shouldn’t land fill space be a priority in Kraft’s preservation of land? It is never mentioned in Mr. Yuknut’s presentation.

    Is it a priority for all companies to find ways to prevent hazardous waste from leaving their premises? Do they ask themselves this question or are they only concerned with today’s bottom line and not tomorrow’s problems that they are creating.
