FERRERO4FUTURE (FERRERO FOR FUTURE)
In the context of the FER-Way project, the Ferrero4Future Framework was created: four areas of action upon which the Ferrero Group is working to launch itself towards a more sustainable future.
Efficient resource use
Resources are a precious asset for Ferrero, and it’s important to use them responsibly. Resources such as water, energy and packaging materials are available only in limited quantities, for such reason Ferrero is working to reduce their use along the production chain of its products.
The Group wants to grow as a business with low emissions, for this reason, in order to reduce its impact, it measures and manages its Carbon Footprint, aiming at technological innovation and collaboration and focusing not only on the impact of its business but also on the impact of the entire value chain.
In line with the Group’s policy for the general reduction of waste and the better management of the production chain, and in keeping with the views of the European Union in favour of increasing the quantity of recovered waste, the two main intervention areas of the Group’s production plants on the issue of waste concern a reduction in waste production in absolute terms and the recovery index, equal to 95%.
Protection of natural ecosystem
The business of the Ferrero Group, as part of the global ecosystem, can generate impacts through its direct activities or along the supply chain. It is very important, once the ecosystem elements involved are identified, to actively conserve them. In particular, for a food company like Ferrero, biodiversity, deforestation and use of the soil are certainly key aspects.
