Responsible use of resources

For us to continue to offer healthy food to more people and to grow our business over time, we are dependent on a healthy and vital planet. Our overarching goal is to work towards a more sustainable way of producing food, where production methods and consumer patterns leave as small a footprint as possible, within the margins of what our planet can withstand.

We work systematically with set targets for the areas climate impact, food waste, packaging and water consumption and regularly follow up on our work, using relevant KPI:s. Our climate impact reduction targets are linked to the Science Based Targets Initiatives to further clarify the journey towards a more sustainable business. In addition, Biodiversity is a vital new addition to our overarching targets. At present, we’re developing relevant, measurable targets that will govern our operation.

Reduced climate impact

Target 1: Reduce Scope 1 & 2 GHG emissions by 55 percent per ton of food sold by 2025, compared to 2020. 
Target 2: Reduce absolute Scope 1 & 2 GHG emissions by 42% by 2030, compared to 2021.
Target 3: Reduce Scope 3 GHG emissions with 52% per ton sold food by 2030, compared to 2021.


In our latest review, Biodiversity was deemed significant and crucial focus area, and we are presently developing tangible goals.


Target 1: Reduce plastic use by 50 percent in our own brands’ packaging by 2025. Base year 2021. 
Target 2: All Greenfood’s own brands’ packaging must be recyclable, by 2025. 
Target 3: 80 percent of our own brand’s packaging will be made of renewable materials, by 2025 and 100 percent, by 2030.
Target 4: Measure share of recyclable plastics. The target is set at 100%, by 2025.

Water usage

Since we have reached WWF’s Water Stewardship “Internal Action” level in our own production by 2023, we are now working to establish a new target with focus on lowering our water usage in production. The target will be measured from 2024 onwards.

Supply chain focus: We have a target related to water stress connected to procurement of products in the business area Fresh Produce that stand for the majority of our sourcing. The target is from 2024 onwards, and from here we will not have any own branded products that are considered as causing an extreme water stress in the areas we source. From 2025 we will include all purchases and not only own branded products. We will also require Global G.A.P. Spring water certificates from suppliers who service Fresh Produce with own branded products with high risk and medium risk water stress commodities from January 2025 and onwards. The same requirements will be put on all products from January 2026 and onwards.

There’s more where they came from.
