In September 2017 Ethical Consumer accessed the sustainability section on The Wonderful Company’s website for details of its environmental reporting.
The report was dated within the last two years.
The report contained no future targets.
The report was not independently verified.
The report did not show a reasonable understanding of environmental impacts. While the report did cover important topics such as clean energy, water usage and bees, a good report would have demonstrated a more specific understanding of the ingredients used in both the products and packaging as well as information on the use of agricultural inputs such as pesticides and fertilizers.
The company received Ethical Consumer’s worst rating for its environmental reporting.
