The Sustainable Food Policy Alliance advocates for innovative, science-based solutions to take action against the costly impacts of climate change, build more resilient communities, promote renewable energy, support a circular economy, and further develop sustainable food and agriculture systems.

Each SFPA member company has already set ambitious targets to reduce its impact on the planet, including greenhouse gas emissions, energy use, land and water use, packaging design and material use, ingredients sourcing, and more. Our climate change principles guide our work together and in broader coalitions to advance policies that are beneficial for the environment, while accounting for the specific business imperatives of our supply chains, including farmers, ranchers, and other producers.

Key policy priorities include:

We also recognize the need to listen and learn from other stakeholders on emerging sustainability issues, including:

To this end, we released a set of climate policy principles in April 2019, which we updated in July 2021 to reflect the movement in Washington on this issue. We also recognize the need to listen and learn from other stakeholders on emerging sustainability issues, including:

Issue Spotlight: Circular Economy

Each SFPA member company has invested in making consumer product packaging more sustainable with a focus on recyclability, the circular economy, and climate change. Within our own companies, we are investing in improving recycling systems around the world, innovating our packaging design, and collaborating with suppliers, local communities, and retail customers to advance forward-looking solutions that help our consumers make a difference and impact the planet.

There is no single solution to packaging waste. It is essential that stakeholders, including companies, recycling operators, and federal, state and local governments, come together to make end-to-end system changes that will truly transform our waste management system into a circular economy.

SFPA supports the development of an extended producer responsibility (EPR) program featuring a nationally consistent, economy-wide approach to packaging life cycle management. SFPA member companies participate in EPR programs globally, and we have used that experience to identify our policy priorities for an effective U.S. EPR program.

In addition, SFPA member companies have set ambitious goals to integrate postconsumer recycled content (PCR) into our packaging. Our PCR policy priorities reflect our support for PCR requirements that complement broader efforts to modernize and improve U.S. recycling infrastructure and ultimately improve the quality of PCR – especially for use in food packaging.
