They have a whole web page dedicated to treating the planet with respect by ensuring that their supply chains are sustainable from the fields to consumption. They make an active effort to reduce water consumption by -19%, energy by -5% and Co2 emissions by -23%.
Also, their packaging across the company is 98% recyclable! For more information, check out their website: http://www.barillagroup.com/en/good-planet.
