Like other industries the livestock nutrition and livestock farming chain emits greenhouse gases. Greenhouse gases contribute to climate change. ForFarmers is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
That all starts with measuring our own emissions; such as our use of gas, fuel oil and electricity. In order to reduce our own energy consumption we use an energy saving matrix that includes projects aimed at improving energy efficiency. Purchasing energy efficient machines and installations and installing solar panels, are all good examples.
We are also making ongoing critical assessments of our logistics efficiency (transport) and implementing improvements. A prime indicator being the fuel consumption of our own fleet per delivered feed tonne. Examples that contribute to the improvement are bulk trucks with Euro 6 engines and replacing road transport with rail.

* Scope 1 and 2 emissions are related to our own production on site and outbound transport to farm. Scope 3 emissions are related to the supply chain, upstream (feed materials) and downstream (on farm).
