Fazer has a long tradition in protecting the environment and operating in the Baltic Sea area. We constantly work to decrease the environmental impact of our operations. Fazer is a considerable player in the Baltic Sea region and we feel that our own operations and what we do together with our partners offer us an opportunity to affect the state of the Baltic Sea. We believe that stronger co-operation in the value chain can help us, together with other players in the field, to achieve something important.
We renewed our Baltic Sea Commitment for 2018–2022. In it, we commit to developing our production, ways of working and offering in a way that contributes to the promotion of the ecological balance of the Baltic Sea. The commitment involves actions and targets concerning circular economy, sustainable grain farming, water stewardship plan and offering development.
- We support the circular economy through safe recycling of nutrients, reducing the amounts of waste, and improving resource efficiency. We have set targets for each business area for reducing the amount of waste.
- We will continue to implement the Fazer Grain Vision and further develop sustainable grain farming together with our value chain. Fazer’s aim is for all of our grain in Finland and Sweden to comply with the principles of sustainable farming by 2025.
- We are preparing a water stewardship plan that specifies our goals and the corresponding measures related to water consumption, waste water and reduction of water use in the value chain.
- We develop our offering: emphasising domestic raw materials, favouring seasonal produce, increasing the amount of plant-based foods we offer, promoting the use of sustainable sources of protein, and reducing the amount of food waste.
The new commitment lasts five years. There are several milestones within this period, allowing us to keep track of progress towards meeting the overall goals of the commitment.
