Raisio's environmental impact
Raw materials and material efficiency
Raw materials used in Raisio’s products are renewable. The company’s goal is a material-efficient use of raw materials. To achieve this, all the Group’s production plants have drawn up plans. Material efficiency is promoted particularly through the development of monitoring and reporting.
Raw material use at Raisio’s production plants decreased by over three per cent and per tonne of product by one per cent.
Recoverable waste accounts for more than 94 per cent of the total waste. The amount of landfill waste declined by 62 per cent from the previous year. The amount of hazardous waste decreased by 38 per cent and that of total waste by two per cent.
Scope of reporting: In terms of raw material use, Finnish production plants are reported for 2013 – 2016, while the Group’s continuous operations are reported for 2015 – 2016. Landfill waste is reported for the whole Group’s continuous operations. Water use for products is not included in the raw material quantities shown below.
