We are dedicated to creating a positive impact on society and we do not take this great responsibility lightly. With our commitments to you and to future generations, we are devoted to a holistic operating model, one that is sustainable, respectful and balanced. To this end, we are implementing plans to achieve CO2 neutrality, use water responsibly, and reduce waste. 

Carbon Neutralization

Energy Efficiency

We invest in a wide range of projects each year to enhance our efficiency and contribute to a sustainable future. We recognize the importance of utilizing energy effectively By incorporating innovative technologies, optimizing utilities and processes, implementing energy recovery systems, and promoting good housekeeping practices, we continuously strive to improve our energy efficiency.

Renewable energy

We understand the significant impact that transitioning to renewable energy can have on the environment. That's why we invest in solar panels each year as part of our ongoing efforts to improve efficiency and reduce our carbon footprint. By harnessing the power of renewable sources, we strive to generate our own clean and sustainable energy at our production sites.

We recognize the importance of utilizing carbon-neutral sources like wind, rain, tidal, wave, and geothermal energy, and we are actively working towards increasing our use of renewable sources.

Carbon compensation

At Puratos, we’re committed to going beyond carbon offsetting and taking proactive steps to remove carbon, that’s why we’ve chosen to plant trees in our value chain rather than buying carbon credits. This involves planting a diverse range of trees, including timber trees, fruit trees, and nitrogen-fixing trees.

Water Management

One of our focus is the continuous upgrade our wastewater treatment capacity. By investing in advanced technologies, infrastructure, and several projects we have enhanced our ability to treat wastewater effectively, ensuring that our water discharge meets stringent quality standards. This not only ensures the safety of local rivers and ecosystems but also demonstrates our commitment to environmental stewardship.



While packaging is essential to ensure food safety, extend shelf life of products and protect the integrity of products during transport, it is our focus to reduce it to the minimum. We are committed to constantly making functional and sustainability improvements to the various types of packaging we use. To achieve our waste objectives, we focus on reducing the amount of single-use packaging and reusing as much packaging as possible. 

Our focus areas include increasing reusable packaging through pooling systems on pallets and industrial containers, developing recyclable-ready solutions on powder bags with our global scope in mind, and developing innovative flexible plastic packaging solutions in mono-polymer structure materials.

Food waste

We are deeply committed to reducing production waste throughout our operations and helping our customers and consumers to reduce food waste by extending the shelf life of products. To address this issue, we have a range of solutions that help our customers extend the shelf life and freshness of their products.

Better Planet

Here at Puratos, we know how important it is to take good care of our planet. We reduce, reuse, and recycle as much as we can and have pledged to help preserve our forests and biodiversity. In addition, we aim to source all of our ingredients responsibly, ensuring minimum impact on planet Earth.

Responsible Sourcing

To manufacture high-quality ingredients for our bakery, patisserie, and chocolate industry, Puratos sources many different raw materials from around the world. We are 100% committed to responsible sourcing and make sure we collaborate and maintain an open dialog with the people involved in our supply chain.
