The Emsland Group, Germany’s largest producer of potato starch and dehydrated potato flakes, continues to take its role in impacting climate change very seriously. Once again, Emsland participated in the environmental reporting conducted by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) to publicly underscore its commitment to climate protection.
This year, too, the results are very positive. As announced at the end of January 2016, the Emsland Group made the A-list of the CDP Global Supply Chain Report as a result of its activities. This is a direct outcome of the climate treaty adopted at the 2015 UN Climate Change Conference held in Paris. The Emsland Group has thus taken a leading position internationally in the context of climate change, reinforcing its commitment to sustainability and environmental protection. Ongoing process optimization and a “think-outside-the-box” attitude on the part of staff are critical for the achievement of these goals.
For years, the Emsland Group has accepted responsibility for advancing the ecological focus of the group and continuing to make an active contribution to a climate-friendly and sustainable business. To cement the dialogue with stakeholders, however, it will also be essential to continue to participate in the CDP, to successively improve its rating and to measure its carbon footprint (CO2 emissions).
