Food production has environmental impacts in all stages of the value chain, from the production and processing of raw materials to distribution, storage and consumption. The key environmental aspects of Apetit’s operations include material efficiency and the consumption of energy and water. The most significant indirect effects arise from the cultivation of vegetables, grains and oilseeds and from food waste and transportation.
Apetit has invested in determining material corporate responsibility themes, setting goals and creating metrics. An extensive stakeholder survey, operational assessments and a materiality analysis lay the foundation for continuous improvement with regard to environmental aspects.
Apetit reports on the direct climate impact of its own operations. The calculation is based on the energy consumption of Apetit’s production facilities and the way the energy has been generated. 2017 emission coefficients were used to calculate the impacts for 2018 and the comparison year 2017.
Apetit is committed to complying with the national energy efficiency action plan and improving its energy efficiency by 7.5 per cent from 2017 to 2025. The related measures are reported annually, and energy efficiency is monitored by the production plant. In 2018, Apetit’s total energy consumption was 70,865 MWh, or 0,4 per tonne produced/sold.
We introduce environmental key performance indicators and topical themes in our annual and responsibility report:
