On our way to climate neutrality
With creativity, courage, commitment and collaboration, we are embarking on a journey to make our worldwide operations climate-neutral by 2030 – from cultivation and development through production and analysis to packaging and transportation.
Our promise applies not only to our more than 30 locations across four continents but also to our entire supply chain. This means that our climate-neutral business activities will begin on the fields where our more than 150 raw materials such as Greek Mountain Tea, Prickly Pear Cactus, Rosehips and Thyme grow. Around half of our emissions originate here.
“As global supplier of active botanical extracts for pharmaceuticals and dietary supplements, we take responsibility in contributing to a climate neutral world. To achieve this, we set ourselves ambitious climate protection goals in order to fulfil our long-term sustainability strategy.”
Michael Braig, CEO of Finzelberg.
Get set, go!
What we have already achieved
Several years ago we introduced an energy management system at our German sites, which helps us to find ways of saving energy and to implement them effectively.
Since the start of the year, all German sites in the nature network have been obtaining their electricity from renewable sources. We will gradually introduce this practice at our sites in other countries, too.
We have purchased electric cars for our company fleet and have installed charging stations at the German sites.
We have introduced Ecosia, the search engine that plants trees, as stan- dard at our German sites. With every search query we make we are therefore helping important tree-planting projects. We are currently expanding this practice to all our sites around the globe.
