Our three-point strategy
Let’s cut to the chase: The challenge posed by climate change is serious and growing – and the way food is cultivated, produced, and consumed has a substantial impact on the environment.
We share the responsibility with the rest of the world to act on the global warming and as a cooperative owned by Nordic farmers, sustainability comes naturally to us.
As a global food company, we feel we have behaved responsibly and achieved good results. Now, with the climate crisis top of mind, it is time to step up and do more.
To make a tangible, lasting difference, we will need to investigate a broad spectrum of initiatives, plans and targets.
Our comprehensive strategy will not only help us play our part in the international effort, it will also give us a golden opportunity to use our unique strengths to positively affect the environment, health, and human potential, in every country we serve.
Global warming is an emergency, and it is crucial that we respond, particularly in this decade. Starting now, we will reduce our CO2e emissions, from field to fork, to achieve CO2e net zero no later than 2050.
We must maximize the nutrients in our products to positively impact public health and respect the CO2e impact of producing our products. We must double our volume of healthier products by 2030.
We must amplify our efforts to remain an attractive employer, with a reputation for creating a safe working environment that welcomes all colleagues, without prejudice or bias, and offers opportunities for all to thrive.
