Roadmap, an inaugural environmental, social and governance (ESG)
report. The report details Blue Apron’s ESG accomplishments in 2021
against its internal goals and includes the company’s first
Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) report.

expectations of its employees, supply chain, community of customers
and investors. The work has focused on reducing food and packaging
waste in its fulfillment centers and products, becoming carbon
neutral, making a public commitment to sustainable packaging and

demonstrates our commitment to transparency and our vision of
Better Living Through Better Food™,” said Linda Findley, Blue
Apron’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “While we are
pleased with the progress we have made thus far and are proud of
our example-setting standards, we know we can always improve and
build upon each milestone. We look forward to providing updates on
our progress in future reports.”
The Better Living Roadmap is a first step towards the company’s
planned regular annual ESG reporting, with the next installment
expected to be published in the first half of 2023.
Kelly Burton, Blue Apron’s Head of Sustainability and Social
Impact, added, “This report is key to tracking the progress of our
ESG initiatives, including social impact, diversity, equity and
inclusion (DE&I), responsible sourcing, operational food waste
reduction, packaging sustainability and reducing our carbon
footprint. Through this report, we are holding ourselves
accountable against all of our goals.”
