We work hard to reduce our footprint on the environment so that you can do the same.
To give you a complete overview of your environmental impact from your purchasing, we have developed the ABENA Sustainability Calculator (ASC). With ASC, we can map our foodservice products' environmental impact based on 16 different impact factors, including CO2 emissions, water pollution, primary energy use, and distribution methods. In that way, you get full transparency of your own environmental footprint.
At ABENA, we do not want to add to the global statistic of increasing amounts of waste. We see waste as a valuable resource and a source that sparks new innovative product ideas. Therefore, 86.4% of the waste from our main production site in Denmark was recycled in 2018. The waste consists of e.g. foil wrapping from raw materials and surplus textiles, which is collected and sold to recycling companies, where it is processed in a cradle-to-cradle lifecycle that transforms it into new raw materials.
At ABENA, quality is key. Emphasis on the highest quality in our processes, workflows, own production, and products is crucial to us - and always with sustainability in mind. Read more.
