Sustainability strategy and targets
For Chr. Hansen, sustainability is not a stand-alone discipline. It’s the foundation of our business model. And because it’s an integral part of what we do, we don’t have a separate sustainability strategy. Instead, our corporate strategy “Natures no. 1 – Sustainably” captures the full potential we see across our three business areas Food Cultures & Enzymes, Health & Nutrition and Natural Colors.
Our approach to sustainability is innovation led. Through our strong microbial platform and our capabilities in developing natural product solutions we are uniquely positioned to help pave the way for a more sustainable future. We focus on the areas where we can have the highest impact:
- Better farming – We help feed the growing population by promoting sustainable agriculture with our silage inoculant and Plant Health solutions.
- Good health – We improve global health by developing products with documented health benefits.
- Less waste – We help reduce food waste and improve yield and productivity, amongst others with our bioprotective cultures.
In addition to our commercial targets, we have set ourselves ambitious operational goals along the four dimensions workplace responsibility, climate and environment, business and product integrity as well as human rights and responsible sourcing.
