2018 – 2022
Fazer made its first Baltic Sea commitment in 2013.
Fazer has a long tradition of protecting the environment and operating in the Baltic Sea area. Fazer constantly works to decrease the environmental impact of its operations. Fazer is a considerable player in the Baltic Sea region, and its operations and collaboration in the area offer an opportunity to affect the state of the Baltic Sea.
Fazer is committed to developing production, operating methods and selection in ways that support the ecological balance of the Baltic Sea.
Fazer’s commitment to the Baltic Sea Action Group contains four areas and covers the company’s entire business operations.
Circular Economy: Develop ways of working to support the circular economy by enabling safe nutrient circulation, efficient utilisation of waste and side streams, and by increasing material efficiency.
Sustainable grain farming: Implement the grain vision and continue to advance sustainable grain farming. By 2025 all the flour we sell to consumers in Finland and Sweden will fulfil sustainable grain farming principles.
Water Stewardship Plan: Develop a water stewardship plan focusing on water consumption, wastewater and water scarcity in our value chain, aiming for water sustainability.
Fazer offering: We will develop our responsible offering, focusing on domestic food, seasonality, plant-based food, sustainable protein use, and reducing the amount of food waste
At the different stages of food production, we can decrease the amount of valuable nutrients ending up in the water. The Baltic Sea commitment brings all our measures together.Christoph Vitzthum, President and CEO, Fazer
