Paulig is among the forerunner companies in the food industry, and we have committed to set science-based climate targets in accordance with the Paris agreement to limit climate warming to 1.5 Celsius. Our ambition is that by 2030, we will reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from our own operations by 80% and our value chain by 50%. The aim is to get the targets validated by the Science Based Initiative in 2020.
The majority of our greenhouse gas emissions come from our value chain and are related to the raw materials used in the manufacturing of our products. That is why we engage in close cooperation with our raw material suppliers and partners in decreasing the emissions of our value chain. Our goal is to promote sustainable farming practices, look for new raw materials and partners and develop new business models that favour circular economy.
Packaging development continues to be one of the key focus areas for Paulig and our ambition is that, by 2030, all our packages will be made from renewable or recycled materials and will be recyclable. In Paulig’s own operations, the company will continue increasing the share of renewable energy as well as improving the energy efficiency and recycling rate.
Here are a few examples of our work for the environment and climate:
