As a leader in the North American wholesale and grocery distribution industry, we recognize the critical importance of coordinated and rapid decarbonization. I humbly invite our valued supplier partners to join us in limiting our collective climate impacts and building a future that’s better for all.

Climate change is a full-fledged crisis and approximately one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions can be attributed to the food system. UNFI, as a leader in the North American wholesale and grocery distribution industry, is committed to playing a major role in driving change. To address our impacts, UNFI has set three science-based emissions reduction targets–covering our fleet, facilities and value chain–which have been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative. Through this Hub, UNFI will provide tools and resources, including opportunities for our suppliers and partners to learn from experts and each other, to innovate and scale climate solutions across the food system.
