Contributing to an Intact Environment

As a globally active company that relies on agricultural raw materials, the responsible use of natural resources is significant for us. Therefore, an intact environment is essential for our company and, we strive to minimize our environmental footprint across the entire value chain. We are working to create value with fewer resources and less waste and to reduce the environmental footprint of our chocolate, as well as our packaging.

Conservation of biodiversity and natural ecosystems

In our endeavors to preserve biodiversity and ecosystems, we work to address deforestation in all of our supply chains with deforestation risks. We have set forth our ambition to eliminate deforestation within our key deforestation linked supply chains in our Lindt & Sprüngli Deforestation Policy. Additionally, we developed and published a No-Deforestation and Agroforestry Action Plan to address cocoa-related deforestation.

Climate

In the interest of curbing the negative effects of climate change, we are working on reducing our total emissions footprint across our global operations and value chain. In 2023, our science-based targets were validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). We have approved near- and long-term science-based emissions reduction targets with the SBTi. The SBTi has also verified our net-zero science-based target by 2050. The validated targets signify the Group’s contribution towards achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement, which aims to restrict the global temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Further details on our targets can be found in our high-level Roadmap to net-zero, in our latest Sustainability Report and in our Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) Report.

More details about the methodology can be found in our Carbon Footprint Methodology document. Please find further details on our 2023 carbon footprint as well as the independent practitioner’s limited assurance report in our latest Sustainability Report.

Water and Waste

We strive to continuously reduce our municipal water consumption and are developing an integrated water management roadmap. By optimizing our processes we aim to reduce our material waste during production.

Packaging

We proactively challenge our entire packaging portfolio and endeavor to reduce the amount of packaging materials used, increase the recycled and sustainably certified content, and achieve recyclability.
