Emissions are a big driver in climate change. On the one hand, our production is dependent on reliable access to energy sources and renewable raw materials (corn). Agriculture and thus the availability of our main raw material is very vulnerable to climate change.
On the other hand, we also have an impact on climate change due to the nature of our business. The fermentation and subsequent downstream processing needed for the production of our products uses large amounts of heating and cooling, which in turn leads to considerable emissions. Energy-saving measures and projects to increase production efficiency are therefore high on our agenda in order to reduce our emissions. Increased use of renewable energy sources is another important factor.
The topic “energy” is evaluated only in terms of its contribution to emissions, not as an individual topic.
