Our vision is to lead the refinement of farmland resources in an innovative and responsible manner for the farming of tomorrow. With extensive knowledge about grains and our long term approach to farming, Lantmännen want to take an active role in creating a more sustainable energy and food supply. Here we describe our business – taking responsibility from field to fork and focusing on issues that are of importance for a sustainable, profitable and thriving farming.
Grain is our main thread
Grain is the foundation of Lantmännen's business operations. Our contribution to the development of a more sustainable supply of food and energy is based on our knowledge of grain processing and our presence all the way from field to fork. Increased growth from sustainable business requires close cooperation with other players: development and innovation with researchers and suppliers, and constructive dialogue with customers and consumers.
Sustainable business is also about using all resources in our production as efficient as possible, and to take responsibility for people and environment in our supply chain. An important part of our business development aims to offer products and services with sustainability added values. A specific focus is on activities that supports more sustainable farming
Focus on the cultivation step
A big part of the value in Lantmännen’s products is created in the field, where the raw material is grown. Seen from a life cycle perspective, the greatest potential to make a difference is there. In view of this, a large part of our work on sustainable business involves developing farming concepts with lower environmental impact, through advice to farmers and further development of technologies and methods. Together with farmers and customers, we develop new concepts and products with sustainable added values.
Lantmännen’s cultivation concept Climate & Nature reduces the climate impact of grain production by up to 20%, compared to the average wheat production in Sweden. We harvest approximately 70,000 tons of friendlier wheat annually on fields around Sweden. Through this, we have reduced carbon dioxide emissions.
Lantmännen’s brand promise is together we take responsibility from field to fork. Our customers and consumers should feel confident that we have knowledge and control throughout the entire business and that we are doing what we can to minimize the negative impact on people, environment and natural resources. A big part of our work to responsibility is in dialogue and collaboration with suppliers, customers, consumers and other actors.
Sustainability reporting & Code of Conduct
We strive to provide a relevant and transparent account of the work that we do, taking responsibility for our operations and working with sustainable development. Lantmännen applies the GRI Standards Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. Each year we publish a consolidated Annual and Sustainabilty Report.
