American food giant General Mills said it plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30% in the next decade across the entire life of its products, aiming to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.

The maker of Cheerios, Haagen-Dazs and Annie’s will seek to reach the goal through improved agricultural practices, reduced packaging, and halving food loss and waste by 2030.

“While our greatest impact is outside our four walls – in agriculture, ingredients and packaging – we know we have a role to play in helping to restore planetary health,” said Mary Jane Melendez, the company’s chief sustainability officer. General Mills wants to cut emissions produced “from farm to fork to landfill,” it said in a statement.
