2017 Global Responsibility Report

For 150 years, General Mills has been making food people love while investing to make the world around us better. We believe that being successful in the marketplace and being a force for good go hand in hand. In this, our 47th year of reporting back to our communities and stakeholders, we provide updates across four key focus areas: Our Food, Our Planet, Our Workplace and Our Community. We have focused on providing transparency and insights into the topics that are important to our stakeholders and to our business. We are encouraged by the progress we’re making and remain committed to doing even more.

Treating the World with Care: General Mills Global Responsibility

Environment

We Mean Business When it Comes to Climate Change
These days, it’s nearly impossible to open up a paper, news website or even Twitter and not see mention of a climate-related issue. People everywhere – concerned citizens to climate scientists to federal legislators – are trying to understand what to make of it and what to do about it. According to NASA’s scientific-based evidence, climate change is real and is happening as 2016 was our warmest year to date. At this moment in history, we know that we can still make changes to alter human impact on our climate. And at General Mills, we’ve taken the approach that we have a responsibility to do something about it.
