What sustainability means to us

Sustainability is about meeting the needs of today without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

We do this by driving efficiencies throughout our business and investing in science and tools that give us and our shareholders the capability required to optimise value from the land while minimising environmental harm.

Integrated reporting is about creating value over time. It helps us to better engage with and understand our stakeholders, to identify and respond to current and future challenges and to employ resources and develop relationships to enable improved decisions.

Our work

Our operations and those of our customers are dependent on natural resources, which is why it’s critical to assess and improve how efficiently we are using them. We are putting together our first sustainability framework to accelerate our efforts. Ravensdown is committed to helping farmers reduce their environmental impact and just as determined to tackle its own. Ravensdown has grown a team of environmental specialists that helps farmers to align their goals and future aspirations within the environmental regulation framework.

Our Footprint

Ravensdown reported its first carbon footprint in 2017. 2017 and 2018 represent our base year for 2025 and 2030 GHG emissions reduction targets, which have been set following a science based approach.  In 2019 we have broadened the scope, removed sources of uncertainty from the datasets and improved our calculation methods.  Total core (scope 1 and 2 emissions) for 2019 were 14,905tCO2e.  

The carbon footprint profile of our wider operations is shown below.
