Systematic environmental management provides a foundation for Cloetta’s efforts to minimise its environmental impact. Cloetta’s environmental work is governed by the Code of Conduct, which states an ambition to comply with the applicable laws and rules, involve the employees and focus on continuous improvements in the environmental area.
Cloetta’s foremost environmental impact arises through water and energy consumption, wastewater emissions, waste and transports. Viewed over the entire life cycle of the products, the most significant environmental impact arises in raw material and packaging production.
Every year, Cloetta carries out an assessment of environmental aspects to identify the existing risks and opportunities. Cloetta has an action plan that defines and governs the activities to be carried out in order to reduce the company’s environmental impact.
The priorities for Cloetta’s environmental work have been set based on how the direct operations impact the environment, the extent of this impact, the probability of unplanned environmental events occurring, the requirements of public authorities and other stakeholders and, finally, the extent to which Cloetta can influence development. The prioritised areas for Cloetta’s environmental work are:
- Energy consumption
- CO2 emissions
- Waste volume, type and recycling
