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.
