Sustainable solutions

It is our ambition to provide our customers with performance solutions based on renewable resources that enable them to reduce their environmental impact. Corbion's products for the Food and Biochemical industries provide our customers not only with functional, but also sustainability benefits. Our solutions for shelf-life extension can optimize distribution and reduce food waste, both resulting in a reduction of related greenhouse gas emissions. Our PLA bioplastics are 100% biobased, with a low carbon footprint and are more resource efficient through low carbohydrate usage.

In 2015 we have identified the success factors that are critical to realizing this ambition. Insight into the environmental impact of our solutions is obviously a pre-requisite, and we assess this as part of our innovation process. This year, we have performed qualitative assessments for all product and process development projects that entered our innovation funnel. Quantitative assessments, including a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), have been performed for a number of specific projects and are typically done at a later stage in the funnel, when the product and process design is fixed and more detailed information is available. This information is also shared with potential customers, for instance to show them how our solutions can help them to reduce their carbon footprint.
