Global ingredients supplier Corbion has announced an ambitious carbon footprint reduction target: to slash one-third of its product-related emissions by 2030.

Corbion will reduce CO2 emissions related to energy, key raw materials, and transport by 33% per ton of product by 2030 from a 2016 base year. The proposed target has received approval by the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) following a thorough validation process.

“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. 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,” said Corbion CEO Olivier Rigaud.

To meet its pledge, Corbion assembled a cross-functional team, including experts in technology transfer, engineering, procurement, global R&D and sustainability, to develop a roadmap outlining key actions, some of which are already in motion:

  • Transitioning to 100% renewable electricity by 2030;
  •  Implementing energy-saving projects at manufacturing sites;
  •  Selecting the most energy-efficient technologies available when equipment is replaced;
  • Establishing an R&D program to identify opportunities for heat integration, electrification, and recycling;
  • Partnering with key raw material suppliers to jointly reduce CO2 emissions.
