diversity, equity & inclusion
we believe the diversity of our people increases our value. We are working towards attracting and retaining diverse perspectives, talent, backgrounds and capabilities and seek equity across all of our people decisions. Our work in this space is building but already includes women in leadership development, education on disability, mental health and wellness and LGBTQI issues, corporate volunteer opportunities, flexible work arrangements, internal career development and equitable review.
We are working to raise our awareness, implement policies and processes to measure DE&I at MNA and then we are committed to working towards building a strong foundation of understanding supported by our values of care, teamwork, excellence and fun.
energy, emissions and water use reductions
we are setting science-based targets backed by accurate environmental data management and governance. Using external energy auditing to identify opportunities for improvement we are always looking at ways to improve such as moving our sales fleet to hybrid cars and reducing our leased office footprints.
food and operational waste management
our war on waste has been going for a while with a focus on better forecasting and inventory management support. Now we are expanding that to food waste across the business. This is a multi prong approach to manage all our delicious brands and products through building aligned tracking reports. We focus on ensuring every product we make is of a high quality, backed up by stringent quality certifications, minimising raw material waste through the production process (dips can be sticky if you don’t know what you're doing!), and the maintaining the cold chain so each product can make it to our consumers and not in the bin.
plastics and packaging for circularity
our delicious products come in plastic containers, so we are committed to playing our part in the circular economy for plastic packaging. One of our flagship goals is to meet the National Plastics Plan 2025 targets. We are members of APCO and report annually against our progress.
We are proud of our progress made to date increasing our overall APCO performance from 38% in 2022 to 63% in 2023 putting us in the leading category.
We have done this through engaging a Senior Packaging Technologist that works across our brands and new product development to identify opportunities and is a Member of the Australian Institute of Packaging (MAIP).
Driven by our Sustainable Packaging Policy commitment, this has seen us do the following from 2022 onwards:
- develop a full packaging library, covering every , Primary , Secondary & Tertiary packaging being Bottle , cap, label, tub, lid, foil, soft plastic ,Cartons and box, ink and substrates across our brand portfolio; knowledge is power after all!
- participated in Plant a Tree Day to put natural resources back in the ground. Cardboard can only be recycled 5-7 times and MNA used approximately 1500 tonnes of cardboard in 2022, so it is important for us to contribute to the replacement of natural resources.
combining science and partnerships for shared value
We are problem solvers, yet we don’t have all the answers but remember those exciting new healthy and nutritious products we mentioned? well we are partnering with suppliers that build sustainable practices into their produce. We are going to keep working on it focusing on the future of food, being involved in industry forums and speaking with our suppliers to keep moving the dial forward.
sustainable practices for food and natural resources
we understand the risks of a climate constrained world, we understand our role and create opportunities to be innovative in our responses. we have long been fiercely supportive of Australian farmers that make the high-quality fruits in our nudie juice, veggies in our delicious Black Swan dips and dairy for our Wattle Valley cheeses. Now we strive to be active supporters of regenerative agriculture as these primary producers look to sustainable or regenerative agricultural practices. we can learn a lot from each other so we can all make the best tasting products and delight tastebuds on each bite.
transparent, traceable and ethical supply chains
Our success is dependent on our value chain partners so we embed environmental and social considerations into the procurement process to identify, minimise and address any sustainability issues. Our supply chain represents 68% of emissions (2020 data) and therefore a large part of our sustainability opportunities.
We have mapped our value chain and are taking a risk-based prioritized approach to address sustainability issues starting with governance, communication to suppliers and assessments. We utilize the SEDEX platform for external assurance audits with high-risk suppliers and our due diligence framework.
