For The Second Consecutive Year, Grupo Bimbo Receives Recognition for its Actions to Mitigate the Effects of Climate Change at a Global Level

  • The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) included the global bakery on The A List 2023, which highlights companies with the best environmental strategies in the world.
  • Approximately 21,000 global companies from different industries applied for The A List and only 346, including Grupo Bimbo, received this rating.  
  • CDP is a non-profit charitable organization that manages and produces analysis that enables publicly traded companies and local governments to disclose their environmental impact and benchmark themselves against others in the marketplace.

Toronto, March 12, 2024. For the second consecutive year, Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), a non-governmental organization, recognized Bimbo Canada’s parent company, Grupo Bimbo, the world’s largest bakery, for its global efforts to combat climate change. The Mexican company has achieved the prestigious “A” rating in the 2023 ranking, which recognizes the highest quality in this area.

Grupo Bimbo was recognized in the Climate Change category, distinguishing itself as the sole Mexican food company to receive this accolade, thanks to its carbon emissions reduction and efforts to use sustainable resources across its facilities. Amongst other notable initiatives, 92% of Grupo Bimbo’s worldwide electricity comes from renewable sources. The company also has the largest fleet of electric delivery vehicles in Latin America and actively promotes regenerative agriculture as part of its business model.

"This recognition is a clear testament of our global commitment to have a positive impact on society and the environment and demonstrates the difference we can make when we’re all working together to achieve a common goal,” said Teresa Schoonings, Senior Director, Sustainability and Diversity, Equity and Belonging at Bimbo Canada. “As part of our purpose to Nourish a Better World, Bimbo Canada has implemented more than 100 sustainability initiatives that reduce emissions, save energy, and minimize food waste. Over the next two years, we will continue to make progress in line with Grupo Bimbo’s ambitious sustainability objectives as we work to achieve Zero Waste to Landfill in all of our facilities, advance electrification within our business and have 100% of our packaging be recyclable, biodegradable, or compostable by 2025.”, she added.

To obtain an "A" grade in its ranking, the CDP conducts a detailed analysis of several variables, one of the most important of which is the transparency and clarity with which companies report their progress and set targets.
