The challenges of climate change affect all businesses. Those with a connection to agriculture are most likely already feeling them today. At the same time, around one third of all global greenhouse gas emissions come from agriculture.

The food sector is therefore caught between the impact of climate change on its own supply chain and the growing pressure to become climate neutral and offer climate neutral products.

We assist companies in designing climate protection measures and jointly developing strategies for their future business. Our strength and focus lies in our consideration of the agricultural supply chain. This also applies when we advise companies on joining the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and support them in implementing the criteria and specifications.

Our approach

We build on what you are already doing today. What ideas and approaches already exist? Do emissions calculations already exist – how deep do they go? These are typical questions you will hear from us when we start working together.

Since your climate strategy has an impact on the entire company, we involve as many stakeholders from the company as possible at different stages. Management, sustainability officers, purchasing, marketing, personnel: they all have justified demands on a climate strategy, which we weigh up and consider together with you.

The SBTi standard in brief

The Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) promotes ambitious climate protection measures by the economy. It enables companies to set science-based targets (SBTs) for reducing emissions.

Advantages of SBTs are:

  • clearly defined emission reduction path
  • in line with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement
  • geared to securing company growth
  • applicable regardless of industry and company size

For this objective, a greenhouse gas accounting is necessary that follows the requirements of the GHG Protocol (see Carbon Footprint).

Basis of the SBTi:

  • oriented on the publications of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
  • Cooperation of:
    • Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)
    • United Nations Global Compact (UNGC)
    • World Resources Institute (WRI)
    • World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF)

HiPP Group
"The cooperation with Soil & More Impacts provides us with valuable insights into the development of future global agricultural raw material production. This external perspective enables us to optimise our HiPP climate strategy and find innovative and long-term solutions for raw material procurement."
