Kellogg regularly conducts in-depth environmental assessments of its manufacturing facilities in Australia.
These assessments are conducted to evaluate each phase of the manufacturing operation, as well as the administration, marketing and sales processes, to ensure compliance with Kellogg standards and with those established by federal, state and local government.
Utilities management programs have been introduced to measure the usage of energy, water and wastewater efficiency (against production output), as well as targeting improvements that may be made.
Waste management is also included in the program, with the monitoring and measuring of waste and by-products generated and transported from most manufacturing sites. Since 2002, the Botany Plant (which is the main manufacturing plant for Kellogg's® cereals in Australia) has successfully reduced water consumption and electricity usage per tonne of production, by 30% and 18%, respectively. The plant is continuing to focus on improvements aimed at further reductions.
