Putting in the necessary effort. From field to fork. For Unibake the climate pillar is very much about CO2e emissions. The ‘e’ in CO2e stands for ‘equivalent’ and means emissions from all sorts of greenhouse gases, not only from CO2. We want to claim NetZero in 2050, but what is even more interesting is the mid- term target we have set to cut emissions from our bakeries and transport by 50% in 2030, also known as scope 1 and 2. It is not an easy job we have set out to do. However, we believe it is doable when we collaborate across our entire business. Unibake has an annual footprint of 823,000 tons (baseline: 2019) CO2e. It’s interesting that 91% of these total emissions derive from scope 3 - emissions that we do not control - and that the raw materials we use in our products (flour, seeds, butter, palm oil, vegetable oils, eggs and so forth) count for 62% of those emissions. Of this, flour alone stands for 23% - a footprint that is hard for us to change because it starts outside of our business – in the field. Over the past years our good colleagues in Lantmännen have gained strong experience with climate friendlier solutions which provide us with a unique opportunity to influence the flour footprint in our bakeries. This is an example of how we strongly benefit from the Field to Fork value chain that we are part of.
