Nature network companies are committed to reducing their carbon footprint –
Secaucas, NJ—Martin Bauer announced that, with all the companies in the nature networkhe takes responsibility for the CO2 issues, pledging reduce emissions from its business activities and reduce its carbon footprint by 2030. Jhe natural networka group of companies that offer botanical products and services, strives to prevent emissions where possible, permanently reduce them and only offset those that cannot be avoided, according to a press release. The network includes MartinBauer, Finzelberg, PhytoLab and Europlant Group, and this commitment extends across the entire supply chain.
As a first step on the road to carbon neutrality, the network has calculated its corporate carbon footprint, which has been verified and certified by an independent external body. The calculation was made in accordance with the international standards of the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol and includes the seven main greenhouse gases defined by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and identified in the Kyoto Protocol .
The calculation measured a footprint of 346,000 metric tons of CO2 equivalents (CO2e), according to a press release. Climate experts say that figure reflects the annual CO2 emissions of a city of around 31,500 people. Nearly 70% of these emissions came from upstream business processes; the greatest amount of emissions came from the acquisition of vegetable raw materials, aromas and ingredients (55%). This is followed by heating for the production of extracts (22%) and electricity consumption in the facilities (12%).
“MartinBauer’s growing presence in the United States means we must move beyond isolated virtuous initiatives to conserve resources and reduce energy consumption,” said Ennio Ranaboldo, CEO of MartinBauer North America, in the press release. “Our impact and engagement extend from the farmlands of Oregon and Northern California to how we view positive changes in our manufacturing and product development practices. It is a fantastic journey that we will share with employees, farmers, customers and suppliers. »
