SUSTAINABILITY AWARD

Solar panels in more
than 70 facilities worldwide help Grupo Bimbo
reduce its carbon footprint and get closer to its
goal of 100% renewable
electric energy by 2025.

vides more financial resources to expand those efforts
even further. "At the end of the day, our initiatives
have to pay for themselves, and that allows us to do
more good because it's good for the business as well,"
Mr. Servitje said. "There are hundreds of initiatives, such
as energy conservation, renewables and reducing our
water footprint, that have been born from the savings we
got out of other initiatives that benefitted the business."

For the planet, across the planet
Although sustainability does not solely pertain to the environment, it is a key element of Grupo Bimbo's efforts,
for which Mr. Servitje was an early proponent.
"At the time we began this journey, we pushed for
more energy conservation and making Grupo Bimbo a
force for good in the environment," he recalled.
Today, Grupo Bimbo's environmental strategies focus
on carbon footprint, water reduction and waste management, each with its own set of initiatives to reach specific
goals in the 2020 Vision.
Known for its challenges with pollution and overpopulation, Mexico City is the logical place for Grupo
Bimbo to set environmental standards, and Alejandra
Vazquez, global environmental management director,
has been an integral part of that. Ms. Vazquez leads the
effort to standardize all environmental best practices
throughout the company in all regions of the world.
"She has been involved since the beginning," Mr. Zarate
attested. "Mexico, by far, is the culture of the business unit
that has more environmental skills and procedures, and
the best of that has been driven by Alejandra."

With the strategies in place, Grupo Bimbo can standardize them globally to ensure the same environmental
sustainability in every region where it has a footprint. In
fact, every plant has 10 mandatory best practices that it
must adhere to. "We need to have the same Grupo Bimbo
in all the places where we operate," Ms. Vazquez said.
Carbon footprint is an area that can easily reveal business benefits through energy efficiency. In fact, Grupo
Bimbo has a specific focus on renewable energy projects
under the leadership of the finance department. It all began in 2012 with the wind farm Piedra Larga followed
by electric vehicles and last year by solar panels now deployed to more than 70 facilities worldwide, with a total
of 25 MW of installed capacity.
"That was the beginning for most of the activities in
Mexico, the United States and Chile," Mr. Zarate said. With
the wind farm plus solar panels, the company currently
gets about 90% of its electrical energy for 43 plants and
sales and distribution centers in Mexico, which puts Grupo
Bimbo on track toward 100% renewable energy by 2025.
Ms. Vazquez sees this as a starting point to greater
change. "In places like India or Latin America - and all
the countries where we operate - when we start solar
systems or other commitments in renewable energy, we
set the example for something everyone can do because
we have demonstrated tangible benefits."
In water reduction, Ms. Vazquez has focused on initiatives such as treatment for recycling the water used in
cleaning, plumbing and irrigation. Over the years and
through technology advances, water treatment facilities
have also become more energy efficient by treating more
water in less time and in a smaller footprint.
The next project, according to Ms. Vazquez, will be
installing systems to harvest rainwater.

Drilling down to control waste
In terms of waste management, the company achieves its
goals through packaging innovation, recycling, culture and
post-consumption initiatives. Grupo Bimbo recently announced the launching of its first line of compostable packaging for bread with its Pan Bimbo Vital products. It's the
first bread packaging of its kind in the country.
This is just one step toward reducing the use of plastic
in all the company's processes through the development
of recyclable, biodegradable and/or compostable materials
and alliances for linear and circular recycling promoting
economic cycles. From there, Grupo Bimbo will focus on
those global regions that are faced with specific challenges
in waste management such as in Latin America and Asia.
"Different countries have different problems with plastic, and we are using innovation - reducing the thickness
of the plastic or the size of the package - to help incentivize recycling efforts," Ms. Vazquez explained.
