HKScan aiming at carbon-neutral food production
HKScan has set the goal of carbon neutrality of its own industrial production by the end of 2025 and carbon neutrality of the entire food chain from farms to consumers by the end of 2040 at the latest. Climate work is carried out in all our home market areas in Finland, Sweden, the Baltics and Denmark. Achieving the targets requires both a significant reduction of emissions and an increase in carbon sinks together with contract farmers and other partners. This work is led in line with the company's own Zero Carbon climate plan.
