Hershey I Minimizing Our Environmental Footprint

Hershey I Minimizing Our Environmental Footprint


Protecting Our Planet’s Resources – Safeguarding Our Future

We at Hershey have always said our business relies on a healthy earth. That statement is as true today as it was when Milton Hershey first said his famous quote, “There’s not a person alive who should not plant a tree. Not for the shade that you’ll enjoy, but for those coming after.”

Those coming after us in terms of the future of our business will continue to rely on agricultural commodities grown in healthy soil, rich biodiversity to keep pollinators busy all season long, abundant high-quality water to keep manufacturing our products, and clean air to keep our employees, consumers, and workers in our supply chain healthy and safe. 

Climate change, water scarcity, natural resource depletion and biodiversity degradation pose an increasing threat to our planet, communities and individuals around the world.  As we face environmental challenges, we see opportunities for collective action by governments, businesses, NGOs and multilateral organizations, and we are committed to doing our part to create positive change for a brighter future.
