Brands are increasingly investing in green projects and sustainability as they seek to cut down on emmissions and reduce their carbon footprint.

Heineken has announced a new ambition to decarbonise its own production by 2030 and its full value chain by 2040.

This is the first in a series of refreshed Brew a Better World ambitions, which form an important part of the company’s new EverGreen balanced growth strategy.

Looking ahead to 2040, the company will be the first global brewer to aim for carbon neutrality in its full value chain. The company is taking a science-based approach by working closely with the SBTi to validate its new commitment.

Apple has also announced a first-of-its-kind carbon removal initiative — called the Restore Fund — that will make investments in forestry projects to remove carbon from the atmosphere while generating a financial return for investors.

Netherlands-based digital agency Dept has become climate neutral certified after working with the Climate Neutral organisation to measure and offset our 2020 carbon footprint, while proving our long-term commitment to implementing emissions reduction plans.

Total has begun producing sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at its La Mède biorefinery in southern France and its Oudalle facility near Le Havre. The biojet fuel, made from used cooking oil, will be delivered to French airports starting in April 2021.
 
Total will also be able to produce SAF as from 2024 at its zero-crude Grandpuits platform, southeast of Paris. All of these sustainable aviation fuels will be made from animal fat, used cooking oil and other waste and residue sourced from the circular economy. Total will not use vegetable oils as feedstock.
