Climate footprint from energy and transport

Our target is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from our own production by 50 percent per produced tonne of chicken, between 2015 and 2025. In keeping with Agenda 2030 and the global climate agreement, our overall ambition is to achieve completely fossil-free operations in the future.

In 2018 we formulated a new, stricter climate target to enable us to achieve this: To halve our climate-impacting emissions every 10 years, with the base year being 2016. This target includes energy use and transport, calculated in carbon dioxide equivalents and measured in relation to the size of operations (tonne CO2e per MSEK). However, we are also monitoring our climate footprint in absolute figures as well.

Efficient energy use
Each plant is working continually on energy efficiency. The systematic work on charting this and the actions taken, such as recirculating heat and changing over to energy-efficient LED lighting, has proved beneficial. In recent years, we have also been gradually phasing out fossil energy sources.

Since 2018 we have been buying proof of origin-labelled renewable hydroelectric power for our plants in Sweden and Norway.


The diagrams above display energy use (electricity and heat) and CO2-emissions stemming from energy use per kg chicken product. Reported energy and emission data cover the following facilities: Aars, Farre, Valla, Lieto, Stokke, Jaeren and Manor Farm, together accounting for approximately 95 percent of Scandi Standard’s total production 2018.
