Corbion pledges 33% cut in carbon emissions


In the Netherlands, renewable food and chemical company Corbion has vowed to cut its carbon emissions by a third by 2030.

The emissions target includes energy, raw materials, and transportation emissions. The company says it will meet the target by using 100% renewable energy by 2030, adding energy-savings projects at its manufacturing facilities, and replacing equipment with more energy-efficient models. It will also research heat integration and recycling opportunities.

“As a sustainable ingredients company, Corbion is already deeply involved in developing sustainable solutions that help our customers shrink their carbon footprint by reducing food waste and their use of fossil-based chemicals,” Corbion CEO Olivier Rigaud says in a statement. “But we must do more. We must all become leaders in climate action and do all we can to inspire each other to make a sustainable difference.”
