Aug. 18 /CSRwire/ - CAMDEN, N.J. - August 18, 2008 - Campbell Soup Company's (NYSE:CPB) fiscal 2008 corporate social responsibility report is available at www.campbellsoup.com. The report, "Nourishing People’s Lives," describes Campbell's strategies, policies, programs and initiatives to bolster its commitment to corporate social responsibility, including environmental sustainability.

"Earlier this year we affirmed our commitment to corporate social responsibility and environmental sustainability by developing a strategy specifically addressing this critical area," said Carl Johnson, Campbell’s Chief Strategy Officer. "This report is an important first step that articulates where we are today and outlines our journey for the future.'

The 40-page report focuses on four areas of primary importance to Campbell's stakeholders:

  • Our Consumers. Improving the nutritional value of our products; delivering safe, high-quality, affordable and convenient foods; using consumer feedback to better serve their needs; and marketing our products responsibly.
  • Our Planet. Building on our heritage of minimizing the environmental impacts of our operations through sustainable business practices that meet today's needs, while supporting the needs of future generations.
  • Our Employees. Advancing policies and practices that attract a diverse group of talented employees and provide development opportunities and a culture in which every Campbell associate can flourish and make a difference.
  • Our Communities. Engaging our communities where we live, work and market our products to help nourish the minds, bodies and spirits of our neighbors and consumers.
The structure and content of the report was informed by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)'s G3 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. The report was printed with inks containing soy on Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper stock containing 20 percent post consumer waste content.
