With 105 companies and 31 manufacturing plants worldwide, Ferrero Group products are sold directly and via distributors in over 170 countries. As the Group’s 12th sustainability report, this edition serves as a progress report that builds on their new approach to reporting introduced last year to streamline and increase the transparency of the Ferrero Group’s sustainability efforts and vision.
Their responsible way of doing things focuses on four pillars: protecting the environment, sustainably sourcing high-quality raw materials, promoting responsible consumption and empowering people. This year, they describe their action to go beyond what they have achieved as they grow their global business. The 2020 report showcases how they are planning to build upon the strong foundations already built.

CEO of Ferrero Group
As the Ferrero Group continues to grow their business responsibly, they ensure sustainability is fully embedded by considering their impacts and opportunities along the value chain – from raw materials to end of life. The Ferrero Group has met many of their goals and developed others as their business and the context in which they operate has evolved.
In 2020, they announced a new set of science-based commitments for 2030 which were validated by the SBTi in December 2020: to reduce absolute Scope 1 and 2 emissions. By 50% from a 2018 base year and reduce Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions intensity by 43% per tonne of product produced from a 2018 base year. They have developed a detailed roadmap to reduce emissions from plants, warehouses and main offices to achieve the first target.
We have strengthened our sustainability governance with the creation of a Sustainability Operative Committee. It brings people together from across the group to drive the sustainability agenda as we look to the coming decade.
