Energy and carbon dioxide emissions
Improving energy efficiency and reducing carbon dioxide emissions are Raisio’s key environmental goals. Raisio is involved in The Finnish Food and Drink Industries' Energy Efficiency Agreement. The company aims to reduce its total energy consumption by four per cent from the 2015 levels by the end of 2020.
In 2018, the total energy consumption rose by 3 per cent from 2017, partly due to the transfer of heat production to the company's own bioenergy plant. In 2018, Raisio’s own energy production accounted for some 55 per cent of the company’s total energy consumption.
Energy efficiency measures are taken in all Raisio’s production plants and larger office buildings. For example, a condensate recovery system was expanded in Raisio’s industrial area at the end of 2018. With the system, we can save both water and energy.
In 2018, Raisio’s industrial area achieved carbon neutrality as a result of the bioenergy plant and carbon neutral electricity. In addition, the company’s total carbon dioxide emissions decreased by 75 per cent from 2017. Of all the energy used by the Raisio Group, some 90 per cent was produced in a carbon-neutral way in 2018.
In Raisio’s new responsibility programme, the carbon dioxide emission target is a four per cent decrease from the 2017 levels by the end of 2020 as well as carbon neutrality in the productions by the end of 2023.
Scope of reporting: The Group’s continuing operations 2016 - 2018.
