Our corporate climate footprint increased 77% from 167,000 Tonnes CO2e in 2020 to 296,000 Tonnes CO2e in 2021, as our production volume grew 57%. This means that our impact per produced liter increased 13% from 0.558 to 0.629 CO2e. The two main drivers of our corporate climate footprint are the usual suspects: Ingredients and Transportation.

Chart - Distribution of greenhouse gases by category

The following chart breaks down our corporate climate footprint by GHG emissions scope, as defined by the GHG Protocol. Scope 1 is our direct emissions from sources we own or control. Scope 2 covers indirect emissions from purchased electricity, heating, or cooling. Scope 3 is all other indirect emissions from our value chain like transportation, ingredients and waste from operations. 

Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Scope 1 emissions (T CO2e)11,8864,260
Scope 1 emissions intensity (kg/liters produced)0.0250.014
Scope 2 emissions (T CO2e)3,1903,763
Scope 2 emissions intensity (kg/liters produced)0.0070.013
Scope 3 emissions (T CO2e) 280,464159,080
> Purchased goods and services173,89490,916
> Fuel and energy-related activities2,3583,996
> Waste generated from operations698243
> Upstream transportation and distribution101,60963,174
> Business travel1,905751
Scope 3 emission intensity (kg/liters produced)0.5970.531

Big ass footnote for this table: 

The reported emissions for the Scope 3 category include some estimates (see pages 48-49 in the official sustainability report for an overview of estimates). As a result, the estimates included in the reported Scope 3 emissions will differ from the actual emissions. Third-party data under Scope 3 emissions is more challenging to track, estimate and verify. Our ability to verify the assumptions, estimates and information used to calculate these metrics (whether now, in the past or in the future) may be limited by the integrity of the underlying data available at the relevant point in time and the status and evolution of global, supranational and national laws, guidelines and regulations in relation to the tracking and provision of such data. Therefore, according to the GHG Protocol reporting principles, such information is provided on a reasonable-effort basis and is subject to change. Note – for fossil-based electricity, location-based emission factors have been used in the table above.
