Jungbunzlauer is pleased to announce an enhanced commitment to environmental transparency by disclosing its environmental impact through the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), a global non-profit organisation that operates the world’s leading environmental disclosure platform.
Operating energy and water-intensive processes, Jungbunzlauer takes its corporate responsibility seriously and has been transparently disclosing information through CDP since 2018. In 2023, Jungbunzlauer once again completed CDP's questionnaires on climate change and water security.
Jungbunzlauer’s data will be added to the most comprehensive inventory of self-reported environmental data in the world – helping to drive action through greater transparency. By disclosing through CDP, Jungbunzlauer is prepared to respond to the increasing demand for environmental transparency from financial institutions, customers and policymakers.
In its disclosure, Jungbunzlauer shared data on environmental impact of its operation of large scale industrial fermentation as well as in downstream operations and from the supply chain. Updates on achievements of near term SBTi targets are provided as well, providing a transparent assessment on the climate actions that we already took. In the water questionnaire we provided an assessment in terms of water stress for the water sources we use.
Sustainability is an integral part of Jungbunzlauer's strategy. Our mission “From nature to ingredients®” represents our commitment to protecting people and their environment: In the naturally occurring process of fermentation, we use sustainable raw materials to manufacture ingredients that lead to healthier and safer products and processes – healthier and safer not only for humans but also for the environment.
CDP is a global non-profit that runs the world’s environmental disclosure system for companies, cities, states and regions. Founded in 2000 and working with more than 740 financial institutions with over $137 trillion in assets, CDP pioneered using capital markets and corporate procurement to motivate companies to disclose their environmental impacts, and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, safeguard water resources and protect forests. Over 25,000 organisations around the world disclosed data through CDP in 2023, with more than 23,000 companies – including listed companies worth two thirds global market capitalisation - and over 1,100 cities, states and regions. Fully TCFD aligned, CDP holds the largest environmental database in the world, and CDP scores are widely used to drive investment and procurement decisions towards a zero carbon, sustainable and resilient economy. CDP is a founding member of the Science Based Targets initiative, We Mean Business Coalition, The Investor Agenda and the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative.
