Positive CDP rating for Emmi’s CO2commitment

Date: 05.05.2020Source: Emmi

By the end of 2020 Emmi aim to reduce their global CO2 emissions by 25 percent and are well on the way to achieving this goal. The company provides transparent information on the emissions they cause and the progress they are making in this area. With that in mind, Emmi regularly take part in the CDP (formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project). In 2019 they received a B- grade from the climate experts of this globally active non-profit organisation. This means they are still well above the average in comparison with other companies in the food industry.

As part of their sustainability strategy, in 2017 Emmi set themselves the goal of reducing global CO2 emissions by 25 percent by the end of 2020. Until the end of this strategy period, they are focusing on measures in their operations to reduce direct emissions from the use of fossil fuels and associated indirect emissions from the production of electricity and heat. Emmi provide transparent and detailed information on the emissions we cause and the measures we are taking in this area.

At the request of numerous stakeholders, Emmi have now participated in the ‘CDP Climate Change Rating’ for the second time since 2017. As a company operating in the food sector, Emmi also generates a large proportion of its greenhouse gas emissions in the supply chain, especially in milk production. For this reason, in 2019 the company completed the “CDP Supplier Engagement Rating” as well. CDP gives Emmi emissions data in both ratings the grade B-. This rating puts the company ahead of the pack compared to the average grade of C within the food industry and within Europe (all companies based in Europe). For more visit emmi.com/sustainability
