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 Apetit Group’s most significant climate and environmental impacts arise in the various stages of the food production value chain, from cultivation and procurement, production and processing, and distribution, storage and consumption.
The relevant ways for Apetit to affect its climate and environmental impacts include the improvement of the efficiency of its production facilities regarding consumption of energy and water and the reduction of food waste and improving material efficiency. Apetit is committed to the principles of sustainable development and has determined an operating policy and a Code of Conduct for the entire Group. Environmental management is based on environmental legislation, current environmental permits and for environmental systems that are used on production sites.
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.
