Bio launches   its   first  ever  Annual Sustainability   Report,   offering   a  full  review  of  the  sustainability   program,   water   conservation, recycling, packaging   and  C02   footprint   for  the  year 2019/20.   We are honored  that  the  Principle Secretary for Environment  and Forestry, Dr.  Chris  Kiptoo,  will  officially  launch the annual   report at Bio Food Products Ltd.

The report  shows what we have  achieved  in terms of reductions  of C02 emissions,   reducing water consumption,    making   our packaging   more sustainable     and  creating  a work environment  where the Bio team can thrive.

“Sustainability  is a core   pillar to our business   since  2017. It is  at the  heart of everything that we do at Bio.  We want  to create  a  business  that  not only produces the,  cleanest,   best tasting and  healthiest products   but   also   takes  into  account  our  social   and environmental    impact,   both  now  and in  the future,”   said the  Executive  Chairman   Bio  Foods Products,  Joachim  Westerveld.

In addition  to the report launch, we are  happy to announce that  we are carbon neutral  as certified  by One Carbon  World.   This  means,   as Bio,  we have  achieved   net zero carbon dioxide  by balancing emissions    with   carbon  removals.    This   promotes  global    balancing   of  emissions   while  emission reduction  strategies are being  implemented.

“We believe   that  all  people should  have  access to clean,  healthy   and   nutritious  food. Now  and  in the future.   Sustainability   is  thus   at the   heart   of  everything   we  do at  Bio.   Whether  it  is   in product development,    route planning   of our distribution   trucks or running  of our factory,   we make decisions that  consider   the  wellbeing   of people and  planet”,   said   the  Managing Director   Bio  Foods  Products, Eelco Weber.

The report contributes to different  sustainable    goals (SDGs)  from the team’s  wellbeing to the  planet wellbeing.   This ranging from  Climate  Action,  Good Health   and  Wellbeing,    Responsible   Consumption and Reduction,   Clean   Water,  and  many  others  when  it  comes to  engaging our  supply  chain   and partners.

In  coming  days, the report will  also  be added on to Bio website  for the public to review and join  the in the  sustainability    journey.
