Blommer recognizes that cocoa bean production, processing and chocolate manufacturing activities have an impact on the environment. We are committed to conduct business in an environmentally responsible manner and to provide sound environmental stewardship throughout the value chain by continuously reducing our impacts on air, land and water.
In 2018, the Fuji Oil Group formulated it's Environmental Vision 2030 and committed to:
CO2 Emissions: 40% reduction in absolute Scope 1 and Scope 2, and 18% reduction in absolute Scope 3
Water Usage: 20% reduction per unit of production
Waste: 10% reduction per unit of production
In line with the Environmental Vison 2030, Blommer leads environmental initiatives in our plants in three areas: waste, water and energy.
We believe in the 3 Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. And we adapt this strategy at all levels, encouraging for more sustainable behaviors everyday.
Blommer is committed to contribute to the Fuji’s Environmental Vision 2030 that aims at reducing waste generated by unit of production by 10% by 2030 (vs. 2016). By implementing an ambitious recycling program in all facilities, diverting waste from landfill and continuously looking at opportunities to generate less waste, we aim at reducing the amount of waste per unit of production by 4% by 2023 (compared to 2019).
Our efforts have led Blommer to divert more than 60% of waste from landfill on average across all facilities in 2019.
Blommer is also fully committed to eliminating food waste. When it can’t be avoided, we have partnered with companies that can repurpose is into mulch or animal feed. For example, our cocoa shells are used to make mulch that can help keep weeds at bay, increase water retention and contributes to soil fertility.
