KeHE’s Sustainability Mission Statement: In alignment with our core purpose of serving to make lives better, we are committed to being responsible stewards of the environment to create a sustainable future for all. We will establish and implement a comprehensive and multi-year action plan that reduces emissions and solid waste throughout our value chain.
Here are just a few of the ways we’re focused on creating a more sustainable future:
- We’re proud to have five LEED® Certified facilities across the enterprise
- A robust recycling cardboard & plastic program at all warehouses
- Reduced emission at Stockton, California warehouse through implementing alternative energy solution
- Implemented Shorepower at select warehouse locations to more sustainably cool refer trucks
- Partnered with the EPA’s Smartway Program
- Added five Compressed Natural Gas tractors to fleet in 2020
Fighting Food Waste
If the United States went grocery shopping, it would leave with five bags, drop two in the parking lot, and leave them there. This may seem crazy, but as a country we leave a full 40% of our food uneaten.
That’s why we’ve partnered with Climate Collaborative to provide retailers with best practices to reduce food waste.
We’re a proud B Corporation
At KeHE, we believe in a quadruple bottom line: profits, plus people, planet, and purpose.
By using business as a force for good, we can positively impact our people, the planet, and our communities. That’s why we took the step to become a certified B Corporation in 2015.
