Targets and governance

Every day, Chr. Hansen’s ingredients are consumed by more than 1 billion people worldwide. This leaves us with the opportunity to make a positive impact on the global food, health and agricultural industries. 

By pioneering microbial science and industrial fermentation, our technology/products enables food manufacturer and farmers to produce more with less, increase CO2 efficiency and lower waste across their value chain. 

In addition to positive climate impact enabled by our microbial based products, we are also fully committed to help curb climate change on our own home turf and across our entire value chain. 


Supporting the UN Global Goals no. 2, 3 and 12

Chr. Hansen aligns its business practices with recognized principles for responsible business conduct such as the UN Global Compact and the UN Global Goals for sustainable development. Our three product targets supporting the UN Global Goals no. 2, 3 and 12 reflect our innovation force and the impact we have through our products on addressing global challenges.


Committed to curb climate change

Chr. Hansen is committed to curb climate change and do our part in ensuring that world temperatures do not rise beyond 1.5oC compared to pre-industrial levels. While our products can enable a transition towards a more sustainable food system, we are also committed within our own operations to continuously limit our footprint. As examples, we have committed to science based targets, and have set our ambitious targets for renewable electricity and circular management of biowaste flows.
