Climate targets Lantmännen has adopted a proactive and clear target: between 2009 and 2020 carbon dioxide emissions must reduce by 40% in relation to value added. The interim target for 2013 is15%. The target is restricted to transportation and energy use in own production.
How will the target be achieved? Lantmännen’s production facilities process grain and other ingredients into foodstuffs, feeds and renewable fuels. Lantmännen is constantly working to improve energy efficiency and to convert fossil-fired systems to biofuel. Lantmännen has reduced its use of heating oil by around two thirds. They are also working on utilising residual products for energy production and works continually to optimise transport and to switch to greener fuels and methods of transport. The company has also placed greater emphasis on climate performance when buying electricity and heating.
Lantmännen’s measurable climate target is restricted to energy use in own production and outsourced transportation. It is also working to reduce its climate impact at other stages, along with suppliers and customers.

Sustainable business development is one of our strategic focus areas in order to increase our profitability until 2020, and we observe an increased interest among our customers in the production process from ground to table. Cooperation throughout the entire production chain with our customers and suppliers is a key to success. There still remains potential to develop resource efficiency further, for instance in how we manage heat waste and to increase the use of bio fuels.
