100% Recyclable Packaging
The emissions reduction target set out in the plan will cover emissions in Scopes 1 to 3 which includes the company’s global value chain. The long-term target is to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
The wine and spirits group has set a target to make all packaging lightweight, 100% recyclable and made of materials from certified sources, or from recycled origin by 2030.
Furthermore, it plans to achieve carbon-neutral operations at Koskenkorva distillery by 2026 and carbon-neutral production throughout all operations by 2030, without carbon compensations.
Additionally, Anora stated that it will invest in regenerative farming by increasing the share of regeneratively cultivated barley as the raw material of Anora’s own grain spirit-based products to 30% by 2030.
“Sustainability is at the heart of our strategy and central to the production of all our grain-based spirits," said Petra Gräsbeck, communications and sustainability director at Anora. "We have built our new roadmap on our truly unique platform in which we have been investing for over a decade.
"Our new roadmap is called 'Regenerate the Future'. This refers to regenerative farming, regenerating the conditions of our planet, but also regenerating ourselves and our operations as well as supporting responsible Nordic drinking culture the coming decades with the aim of building sustainable, future-proof business."
