Environmental Responsibility

The Ferrero Group has expressed its commitment to environmentally safe practices around the world and is committed to educating employees and suppliers of its environmental principles. This can be found in the Social Responsibility tab of www.ferrero.com.

Ferrero Australia has followed the Group direction by implementing an Environmental Management System certified to the International Standard ISO14001:2004 
During 2018 Ferrero Australia also received certification to ISO50001 for Energy Management Systems and is amongst the first companies in Australia to do so.

Australian management have committed to a policy that states: "The protection of human health and the respect for the environment are at the core of our way of operating; we manage our production facilities with a sustainable use of water resources, of raw and other materials, and of energy, including the use of renewable resources; we pursue a reduction of the environmental impact in all its forms, in particular by reducing emissions, eliminating all wastes and correctly managing waste products. We are committed to setting objectives and targets in a process of continual improvement."

We are committing to use our resources such as power and water more efficiently and trying to reduce the impacts of pollution by increasing the re-use or recycling of our waste, and reducing our emissions. Our environmental system is based on a continual review of all our business operations and is designed to ensure we comply with legal and other environmental requirements in Australia.

In Australia, we are signatories to the following environmental initiatives:
