Strategy and Goals
We plan on reducing the consumption of resources by 20% by the year 2020
There is no new product development that does not involve recycling. From the choice of materials, to processing, to the finished packaging, we make it our mission to be mindful of our environment.
Our employees pro-actively shape our campaign to protect the environment and resources, and continuously implement improvements on a daily basis. As experts for their respective working processes and by thinking things through, they ensure that sustainability is lived at Bahlsen. Thanks to their commitment, we were able to clearly reduce waste at all national and international sites over the past years. Here are a few examples:
In 2013, we partnered with "Plant for the Planet", an international student initiative. Bahlsen supports the movement and regularly organizes "Plant for the Planet" academies, where children are trained to become Ambassadors for Climate Justice. Since then, we have been able to educate 710 children at 18 academies to become Ambassadors for Climate Justice. We consolidated this partnership with the promise to plant 125,000 trees.
We defined our key environmental goal in the AGENDA 2020: to lower the consumption of electricity, gas and water as well as the production of waste per ton of product produced by 20% by the year 2020.
