Towards carbon net zero

Our modern production sites consume high volumes of energy to ensure the purity, quality and safety of our ingredients. And we continue to expand them in preparation for future global demand.

This is why our climate strategy is so important. As our business grows, we aim to reduce production-related emissions to carbon net zero by 2050. Our intermediate goal for 2030 is to achieve a 42% reduction in emissions compared to our 2015 baseline.

Our climate ambition

Arla Foods Ingredients is committed to the Arla Group ambition to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 CO2e emissions by 63% in 2030 compared to our 2015 baseline. We will contribute to this target by driving the green transformation of our fully-owned production sites.

The Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) has approved this target as consistent with the Paris Agreement ambition to limit global warming to 1.5°C.

The group-level target for scope 3 emissions is a 30% reduction by 2030.  

We are working with the Arla group to update this target in line with the SBTi Forest, Land and Agriculture (FLAG) guidelines.

How we’re reducing our carbon footprint

Electrification based on renewable energy
Electrification based on renewable energy

Investments in electric boiler technology mean we can now proceed with plans to electrify our most energy-intensive production processes. By the end of 2025, the electricity supply at our plants in Denmark will be 100% renewable

Heat recovery and reuse
Heat recovery and reuse

We’re transforming our heating and cooling systems to enable the capture and repurposing of surplus heat. At our largest processing plant Danmark Protein, the work currently underway will cut carbon emissions by 22% compared to 2023.

Alternative fuels

Our plants in Denmark are transitioning away from fossil-derived natural gas. Current initiatives at Danmark Protein will reduce gas-related carbon emissions by 43% compared to 2022.
