Hershey Exceeds Environmental Goals

Hershey-feb10Hershey has exceeded three of its key environmental sustainability goals set in 2012 by two to three years.

The chocolate maker surpassed its water consumption target three years early and its zero waste to landfill (ZWL) and recycling targets two years early. By the end of 2013, the company had converted six of its manufacturing facilities to ZWL, surpassing its 2015 goal of five; achieved a recycling rate of 86.6 percent, beating its 2015 goal of 85 percent; and reduced water consumption per pound of product by 58 percent by the end of 2012, far exceeding its 2015 goal of 10 percent.

Water reductions were partly attributable to “Project Next Century,” which included the expansion of Hershey’s West Hershey manufacturing facility and the closure of its legacy 19 East Chocolate Ave. plant.

Six manufacturing plants and five other Hershey facilities have achieved ZWL. The six ZWL manufacturing plants represent 97 percent of Hershey’s US production, 75 percent of all North American production and 67 percent of production globally.

Hershey’s next CSR report will outline 2013 progress against all of the company’s environmental goals, including reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
