Lantmännen has an important role to play in meeting global challenges. We drive development towards the farming of the future with sustainable food and bioenergy systems. We see the potential to, together with customers and suppliers, significantly reduce the impact on the environment and natural resources and generate profitable growth from new and existing businesses. In this way, we can meet an increased need for responsibly produced food, bioenergy and bio-based materials – today and in the future. 

Framework for sustainable business

With operations throughout the grain value chain, Lantmännen has a unique opportunity to pursue sustainable business development, which is the basis for Lantmännen’s and our members’ long-term profitability. Lantmännen’s Field to Fork 2030 strategy is leading and accelerating the development of sustainable solutions throughout the value chain. Based on renewable raw materials from arable land, we develop businesses that optimize cultivation, increase resource efficiency, close cycles, and minimize the impact on people and the environment. 

We have prioritized sustainability topics that are essential for Lantmännen's contribution to sustainable development and sustainable business. They are found in three areas: Climate and ecosystems, Sustainable products and renewable raw materials, and Responsible employer and business partner. 

Lantmännen’s framework for sustainable business, described in the illustration, sets out ambitions and targets for the priority issues and the outcomes are reported in the Sustainability Report. Learn more in the Sustainability Report and GRI Index. The framework's sustainability issues with ambitions and goals are central to how we work with risks and opportunities. The framework is used in our strategic business planning.

Climate targets

Lantmännen's climate targets are based on reduction in emissions that is in line with the Paris Agreement, which requires a halving of the climate impact every ten years. The targets cover the value chain and are divided into three parts, with a focus on fossil-free production and fossil-free transport, continued energy efficiency and investments and measures for reduced climate impact.


Target primary production

The target is to create prerequisites for a sustainable primary production with a halved climate impact every ten years to achieve climate neutrality by 2050.


Target for own production

Halve climate impact from own production, in relations to net sales, by 2030, with 2019 as the base year.


Target for purchased transports

Halve climate impact from purchased transports, in relations to net sales, by 2030, with 2019 as the base year.
