ConAgra plans to reduce packaging, waste

ConAgra Foods Inc. said Monday that it will reduce its packaging, waste, greenhouse gas and water use by 2015.

The food maker said it would cut greenhouse gas emissions by 20 percent and water use by 15 percent as compared to its 2008 levels.

ConAgra said it would reduce its packaging by 10 percent as compared to 2008 levels and increase the amount of packaging made of renewable resources from 45 percent to more than 50 percent. The company also said it plans to increase the use of recycled content in packaging overall by 25 percent.

Among other sustainability goals, the company said it would encourage continuous improvement of the use of energy, water, materials and waste in its supply chain such as working with growers to improve farming practices.

Shares of ConAgra fell 6 cents to $25.17 in midday trading.
