From Emissions To Ambition

The strategy and science of carbon-cutting

Food manufacturing is one of the world’s biggest greenhouse gas contributors. Maple Leaf Foods decided to be a part of the solution—by decarbonizing its operations and supply chain through data-driven, targeted action

A GreenLight to a better future 

Maple Leaf Foods’ path to carbon neutral was empowered by Decarbonization Solutions, a Deloitte technology asset that enabled the organization to set net-zero goals, identify initiatives for carbon reduction, create a roadmap, analyze the data and monitor progress in real time. This technology is incorporated in GreenLight Solution, an end-to-end decarbonization software tool that helps unlock a clear, actionable path to net-zero emissions that can be deployed by organizations across a wide range of industries and sectors. 

GreenLight, built on a leading-edge cloud AI platform, can accurately calculate emissions and evaluate decarbonization projects using a dataset of over 150,000 emissions factors, benchmarks, and abatement metrics. It can also drive the financial benefits that come from net-zero initiatives, identifying tax credits and incentives from a global incentives hub covering 16,000 programs, in 70 countries by category, solution, or geography.

"We became one of the first animal protein companies in the world to get science-based targets set. And then we had to find ways to produce our food more efficiently with fewer resources."
