Kellanova Commits to Advancing Sustainable and Equitable Access to Food for All with Better Days Promise

Kellanova, the global snacks-led powerhouse previously known as the Kellogg Company before it officially split into two companies in October – WK Kellogg Co. now being the owners of the North American cereal division – is reaffirming its multi-pillar commitment to advancing sustainable and equitable access to food, building on commitments established previously by Kellogg Company. Through its Kellanova Better Days Promise, its social and environmental strategy, Kellanova is committing to creating better days for 4 billion people by the end of 2030.

With a top to bottom global approach, with no change in timeline, Kellanova has refreshed its previous commitment and will create better days for 4 billion people by the end of 2030. Additionally, Kellanova has announced its intention to set near- and long-term company-wide emission reductions in line with science-based net-zero standards with the Science Based Targets initiative, a new environmental commitment.

As the name “Kellanova” signals, the company is advancing the legacy built in the previous 117 years as Kellogg Company and is proud to continue the Better Days Promise.

Kellanova will continue this journey, aiming to create #BetterDays for 4 billion people by:

  • Nourishing 1.5 billion people with foods that deliver nutrients of need by the end of 2030.
  • Feeding 400 million people facing food insecurity or crisis by the end of 2030.
  • Nurturing people and planet by creating a climate-positive future, including advancing the wellbeing of 250,000 people in the food chain, from farming communities to processors, prioritizing support for vulnerable groups by the end of 2030.
  • Committing to set company-wide emission reductions in line with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) Net-Zero Standard by the end of 2050.
  • Valuing ED&I in our workforce by aspiring for gender 50/50 parity at the management level globally and 25 percent People of Color at the management level in the US by the end of 2025.
  • And, engaging 2 billion people along the journey by the end of 2030.

“On our journey to becoming Kellanova, we are seizing the opportunity of our new chapter to aim higher and to have a greater ambition for our role in society. We are more committed than ever before to leading with our purpose to create better days and a place at the table for everyone through our trusted food brands,” said Steve Cahillane, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Kellanova. “Setting even more aggressive targets for Kellanova’s Better Days Promise enables us to fulfill our purpose to make a positive impact across our four interconnected areas of wellbeing, hunger, sustainability and equity, diversity and inclusion. We remain focused on creating a place at the table for everyone.”

Kellanova will report on 2024 progress against these commitments in its Social and Environmental Report, which will be issued in 2025.
