HKScan Sweden’s target is a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions between 2003 and 2020. The target has been set in absolute figures to reflect the company’s total emissions. The emissions target includes scope 1 and scope 2 as well as business travel, outsourced inward transportation and the production and distribution of energy and vehicle fuels in scope 3.
How will the emissions target be achieved?
• Surveying energy use and individual measurement of consumption per production line enables energy use to be reduced and continual improvement work to be directly measured.
• Higher requirements of company cars have been introduced, demanding reduced emissions of CO2.
• HKScan is working to optimise inward transportation of animals in order to reduce the distance that they are transported.
• As part of its Lean work to streamline all its processes HKScan has in its follow-up linked its environmental work to the positive financial results that are being achieved. Through this they are building the skills needed to work from a more sustainable perspective.
