Ardo's answer to climate change
Climate change is impacting us all, from farmers to consumers. Droughts and floods have hit our farmers' field yields, causing product shortages and disruptions in our supply chain. Additionally, rapid human development is pushing the planetary boundaries, putting pressure on the use of land and water and increasing chemical pollution. We recognise our role in these evolutions and are committed to building resilience in our supply chain.
At Ardo, we strive to contribute to a more sustainable future by supporting a transition to more plant-based diets through our product offering, limiting our own impact by minimising carbon emissions across our food supply chain and adapt to climate change by working on regenerative agricultural practices in the fields through our MIMOSA+ programme.
Ardo’s commitment to the Science-Based Targets initiative
Recognising the need to mitigate Ardo’s climate impact and minimise our carbon footprint across the entire value chain, we decided to align our emission reduction targets with the latest climate science. In December 2023, we formalised our dedication to climate mitigation by signing the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) commitment letter. Specifically, for our scope 1 and 2 emissions, we follow the pathway aimed at limiting global warming to 1.5°C. For our scope 3 emissions, we are following the pathway well below 2°C. As part of our SBTi roadmap, we will distinguish between FLAG (forest, land, agriculture) and non-FLAG emissions.
We are currently in the process of developing our sciencebased reduction targets. We commit to presenting these targets within the next 24 months, subject to approval by SBTi.
