The third pillar of our 2020 sustainability strategy is sustainable solutions which focuses on the life cycle impacts of products. We have completed eight 3rd party reviewed ISO 14044 compliant life cycle assessments covering a total of 21 different product types – according to two fundamentally different modelling approaches.
We have also used life cycle assessment to quantify how our ingredients effect our customer’s value chain. This shows a tremendous potential to reduce our customers environmental footprints. Ultimately it is through collaboration with our customers and stakeholders we can make the biggest contribution to sustainability
In addition to the environmental benefits, significant health benefits – a vital component of social sustainability - can also be achieved through Nutrition & Biosciences innovations. That’s why we are members of the FReSH initiative, a joint initiate between EAT and the World Business Council For Sustainable Development, focused on transforming the global food systems towards more sustainable and healthy diets.
