*This ticker displays estimated global average water savings of plant-based milk when compared to equivalent production of dairy milk based on SunOpta’s annual plant-based milk production volume consisting of almond, oat, soy, rice, and coconut milks which represent over 99% of SunOpta plant-based milk production. Data comes from Poore and Nemecek (2018) with additional calculations by Poore as published by BBC and Roos et al. (2018). The water savings estimations are not directly associated with water use from SunOpta plant-based milk manufacturing, but instead refer to global averages of water consumption from plant-based milk production.

Sustainability is an integral part of SunOpta’s business

SunOpta’s passion for bringing well-being to life drives everything SunOpta does. Sustainability plays a vital role in fulfilling this purpose. Our approach is built on five platforms that are integrated into the overall business strategy: workplace, community, partnerships, environment, and marketplace. These platforms address each dimension of sustainability in a way that serves customers’ best interests, improves the communities in which SunOpta operates, and maximizes value for shareholders – ultimately guiding efforts to become an increasingly sustainable organization.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Reports

SunOpta is proud to release its 2021 Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report, which outlines progress made in the 2021 fiscal year, and the steps the company is taking to identify a path forward across four key areas: products, planet, people and governance.
