2. Our roadmap

Having adopted the roadmap, we focused on developing processes and systems to measure our progress in 2021 to fully report on the goals and targets outlined.

Our sustainability RoadMap 2025 was approved by Nutreco’s Management Board in June 2020. It consists of three principal pillars: Health & Welfare; Climate & Circularity; and Good Citizenship.

Once the RoadMap was adopted, we focused on developing processes and systems to help us accurately measure our progress in 2021 so that we could fully report on the goals and targets it outlines. Those goals and targets are measurably defined to be the basis for this and future reports.

During the fourth quarter of 2020 and first quarter of 2021, we worked to raise awareness – both internally and externally – around the RoadMap and sustainability. We conducted webinars for employees that included Q&A sessions with company leadership. We developed and distributed a brochure and posters outlining the RoadMap and published articles describing it and our progress on our intranet, Nutranet. Externally, we published various social media posts and GIFs, and held an online social media quiz to highlight the specific targets within RoadMap 2025.

During the first half of 2021, we started to document baseline data for the specific targets (KPIs) under the three pillars of our RoadMap 2025. During the second half of the year, we began to conduct energy audits at selected businesses to prioritise improvements in energy efficiency that will help us measurably reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and meet our targets under pillar two. We also developed a customer-centric antibiotic reduction regime with our Brazilian business customers to address our ambitions under pillar one.

*Aspirations are measurable targets that are relevant for our businesses in geographies or markets where there is demand for addressing the respective topic.

For each of our RoadMap 2025 goals and targets, we have aligned an SDG sub-target to measurably address relevant issues. We referenced the “Business reporting on the SDG, interpretation for business” of the SDG to assist us in addressing the issue.
