ARYZTA CARES ABOUT OUR PLANET
Our Strategic Intent
ARYZTA is aware that the earth’s ecosystems are fragile and that environmental conservation is critical to the continued well-being of the planet, its natural resources and its citizens. In order to monitor the Group’s impact on the environment, key bakery production metrics have been established for monitoring electricity consumption, gas consumption, waste water intensity and overall carbon emissions.
These metrics are used not only to assess the efficiency of our individual bakeries and to identify potential cost savings opportunities, but are also included as the primary inputs in determining the Group’s CO2 emissions per metric tonne of food sold, which is the key environmental performance indicator used for measuring the success of our ARYZTA Cares initiative.
This CO2 metric is calculated based on various bakery and distribution activity inputs and applying a relevant Green House Gas emission factor to assess the estimated global warming potential of activities directly related to ARYZTA’s business.
