J.M. Smucker


J.M. Smucker’s corporate reporting contains general language and commitments related to sustainability across its operations. Interestingly, its sustainability strategy does not explicitly address the coffee supply chain, despite some investments in origin projects. It’s important to highlight the absence of specific target-setting, engagements, and reporting within the coffee supply chain for several critical areas. Including social inclusion, climate and zero-deforestation aspects, and farmer economic viability.
