Everyone is talking about climate change. We are acting on it. And that’s been the case for over ten years. Innovative approaches, investments in new technologies, optimisations of processes - we have reached so many milestones already and are proud of the lighthouse projects we are implementing around the world.
We consider ourselves obligated to fight climate change - which is why we set ourselves the goal of climate neutrality already in 2008. Michael Durach Managing Director of Develey Senf & Feinkost GmbH
We are making our way towards climate neutrality, step by step. After we recorded the emissions of greenhouse gases (Scope 1 & Scope 2) at our locations, we took measures to avoid and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Our final step is to compensate for the remaining greenhouse gas emissions through compensation projects and by planting trees.
In 2008, we set ourselves the goal of operating climate-neutral. Since then, we have been closely examining every plant and choosing the best-suited technologies for the respective locations:
50% CO2 savings: Since 2011 we have reduced our CO2 footprint at our German plants by 50%.
100% climate-neutral production: All our German plants have been producing climate-neutral since 2020.
119,019 trees planted: In the last ten years we have already planted 119,019 trees for the climate.
In 2009, we planted the first tree to kick off our partnership with Plant-for-the-Planet. Because trees are simply unbeatably effective when it comes to capturing CO2, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions. By planting trees in cooperation with international organisations, we are ensuring that the unavoidable harmful emissions in our plants as well as our Develey mustards are compensated for.
