The Bakery Cos. have joined with fellow bakers and key customers to focus on initiatives to lower the amount of fossil fuels needed to operate our plants. When any fuel such as natural gas is burned to heat our ovens or to generate electricity, the waste byproduct contributes to greenhouse gas. Greenhouse gases are responsible for the greenhouse effect, which ultimately leads to global warming.

  • In 2012, TBC set a goal to reduce our overall greenhouse gas emissions by 10% by 2022, while continuing to bake our products.
  • In 2014, TBC achieved “zero waste to landfill” in all plants.
  • In 2016, NBC was awarded an Energy Star certificate from the EPA.
