ESG/Ethical Impact

At Chiquita, we believe that the journey to a truly sustainable industry in all aspects simply makes sense – for the environment, for the future of our business, and for our valued farming communities. Our people and their families are the most important part of our business and we have been focused on protecting them during these challenging times. Meanwhile, as part of the essential food supply chain, we are continuing to grow and bring our custom- ers top quality Chiquita bananas and are proud of our teams’ hard work and dedi- cation throughout the supply chain. We are working hard to take a leadership position within the industry, bringing our suppliers and supply chain with us on this journey, and developing challenging com- mitments that provide a roadmap for the future of the banana industry. Our actions on our farms and our com- munities are not intended to stop climate change but instead to build better climate resilience and to contribute to the reversal of such effects. Our actions will only succeed if they do not impact on our commercial offer- ing. We have spent a great deal of time ensuring we can safeguard our produc- tivity, quality, and excellence in logis- tics and service. We have had to invest considerably to achieve this, but we believe it will strengthen our long-term competitiveness. In 2021, we validated our “30BY30” carbon footprint reduction approach through the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi) to ensure our claims and goals are in line with climate science. We are excited to be the first banana company to receive SBTi approval, but of course we continue to work hard to do better and more for our business and customers. Our con- sumers are increasingly interested in the topic of carbon-neutral products, which can help all of us to lower our individual carbon footprint. Eventually, we hope we can develop bespoke carbon offset proj- ects that involve our operations and the actions of the communities that we are part of.
