Last week, the world rejoiced as we had the opportunity to celebrate Mother Earth and all she does to sustain us. In spirit of Earth Week, Sabra® recently shared ambitious new sustainability goals, communicating a promise to nourish people and the planet with commitments across all areas of the business.
"The onus upon us, as corporate citizens of the world, is great, but make no mistake, the opportunity to affect change is extraordinary," said Tomer Harpaz, CEO. "Today, and every day, we at Sabra have the potential to nourish people and the planet. Our key success drivers are inherently and inextricably linked with the health and sustainability of the entire value chain."
In an all-employee meeting, Harpaz and Sabra's Sustainability Leadership Team identified key areas of impact, noting that when people and communities are nourished, society and the environment can flourish. The brand's strategy is designed to hit ambitious, yet essential, targets aligned with the United Nations' Sustainability Goals by 2030, a press release stated.
