dsm-firmenich’s Animal Nutrition and Health business unit has launched a new Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) initiative to provide credible Scope 3 reporting to help customers reach emissions commitments.
The EPDs, provide technical documents that communicate the full environmental footprint per kilogramme of dsm-firmenich products across 19 impact categories from raw material sourcing to manufacturing in line with the EU Product Environmental Footprint methodology.
By offering transparent and credible data, dsm-firmenich aims to support the industry’s need for greater transparency and sustainability in animal protein production, empowering customers to make informed choices that reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable industry.
To ensure the credibility and objectivity of the EPD data, all results undergo third-party assurance by DNV Assurance B.V., confirming compliance with international life cycle assessment standards (ISO 14021:2016) and enhancing the transparency and reliability of the information provided.
The EPD project demonstrates dsm-firmenich’s commitment to sustainability, as part of the strategic, ‘We Make it Possible’ initiative that aims for a robust and achievable transformation in animal protein production. For more visit Environmental Product Declarations – DSM
