Raisio's environmental impact
Raw materials and material efficiency
Raw materials of Raisio's products are renewable. Our objective is efficient use of raw materials. In 2015, raw material use in our Finnish production plants decreased by almost 20 per cent compared to 2014. The most significant factor in the decrease was the termination of pig and poultry feed production at the end of 2014. Some material transfers occur between Raisio's production plants causing repetition in the reporting. Water use for products is not included in the raw material quantities.
For the entire Group, recoverable waste accounts for more than 70 per cent of the total waste volume, and more than 90 per cent for Finnish operations. The amount of food waste used as feed covered more than 50 per cent of the total amount of waste.
Scope of reporting: For raw material use, Finnish production plants are reported in 2013 and 2014. In 2015, continuous operations of the whole Group are reported. Landfill waste is reported for the Group's continuous operations.
