Improvin’ and Bühler collaborate on environmental impact solutions

16 April 20242 min reading

Swiss technology group Bühler and Swedish climate tech company Improvin’ have joined forces to accelerate the sustainability transition of the food industry. Projects conducted by both organizations will offer food producers the tools to calculate and communicate their full environmental footprint, down to a batch-specific basis. 

The projects will encompass all emission scopes (Scopes 1, 2, 3), supporting producers in improving their data-informed decision-making processes towards more sustainable food production. The first joint project will be carried out in Sweden with the rapeseed oil producer Gunnarshögs Gård.

Improvin’ and Bühler offer a comprehensive approach for food producers to track, disclose, and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions at scale, covering all emission scopes. Bühler’s Environmental Impact Services provide a unique combination of quantification expertise, hardware, software, and process knowledge helping food producers to quantify and assess the carbon footprint of their products and operations. Improvin’, on the other hand, enables the producers to measure the sustainability performance of their raw materials, using primary data. 

Together, Bühler and Improvin’ aim to equip food producers with the technology to quantify and disclose the full CO2e (carbon dioxide equivalent) footprint of their operations and products on a batch-by-batch basis. The collaboration kicks off with a project with Gunnarshögs Gård, a leading rapeseed oil producer in Sweden. This project will bring together data from production (Scopes 1 and 2) with data from raw materials (Scope 3 upstream) to provide full transparency across the value chain. 

“These projects with Bühler mark a major milestone. By leveraging our joint know-how, we are extremely well positioned to support our customers in the transition towards more sustainable and transparent food production,” says Niklas Wallsargård, CEO of Improvin’.

Ian Roberts, CTO at Bühler says: “We have identified Improvin’ as a leader in the space of measuring the footprint of raw materials using primary data. We aim to demonstrate how these joint projects enable holistic emissions tracking for food producers, from field to fork.”

Erik Nilsson, CEO of Gunnarshögs Gård says: “Starting this project with Bühler and Improvin’ feels incredibly exciting. We are looking forward to understanding our environmental impact in detail and finding actionable ways to reduce it.”
