ESG/Ethical Impact

Our mission is to build healthier communities by connecting people to real food. We created sweetgreen to make an impact. Our goal since day one has been to leave people and the planet better than we found them. That purpose continues today with every farmer in our supply network, every customer connection, and every member of the sweetgreen team. Every day, our team members create delicious, seasonal and earth-friendly meals from fresh ingredients and produce that prioritizes organic, regenerative, and local sourcing.We work toward sustainable solutions for every aspect of our business. We do this not only because it’s our collective responsibility but also because we believe it creates a high-quality, delicious-tasting product that our customers notice. This, in turn, builds a better business and is what we call WIN-WIN-WIN, our first core value. While we’re proud of how far we’ve come, we acknowledge there’s more work ahead. It’s our lifelong commitment to run a sustainable company. Since day one, we have been dedicated to making sustainable decisions that will last beyond our generation. Our core value of win-win-win encourages our team members to think sustainably and create lasting value for our customers, company, and communities. While progress is not always linear, we have made steady improvements by setting ambitious goals, holding ourselves accountable, and celebrating our wins throughout the last fifteen years. Our approach to serving delicious, craveable food is guided by our core values. Every decision is rooted in intention, integrity, and care, from building a transparent supply chain to serving nutrient-dense food made from scratch and packed with flavor. Every order offers a taste of our commitment to a healthier future. At sweetgreen, we know that environmental sustainability is good for our business, our community, and our customers. As a company with sustainability at its core, we proactively mitigate climate risk and plan for the future. Food production contributes a quarter or more of total global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions3. We aim to unlock sustainable growth by influencing our entire supply chain up and downstream and strengthening partnerships with all stakeholders to create a more resilient business and food system. At sweetgreen, our people are our best ingredient. Our 6,000+ employees are at the center of every decision we make. Building a great culture is everyone’s responsibility, and our People team supports the five-star team member experience from attracting, recruiting, and retaining our talent, bolstering our inclusive culture and benefits, to providing ongoing training and development opportunities.Our meal donation efforts were amplified at the height of COVID-19 in 2020. We had dedicated our Outpost operations to serving healthy meals to healthcare heroes for free in partnership with World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit founded by Chef José Andrés. Together, we donated nearly 400,000 meals to over 400 hospitals while providing our team members with much-needed work hours and sustaining the farm operations of our growers. The positive reception of this initiative and rising food insecurity led us to continue donating meals during new restaurant openings.
