Scope 3 – Corporate Carbon Footprint
Scope 3 emissions represent the hidden – or indirect – Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions within a company’s supply chain and are responsible for the largest part of its environmental impact by far. For retailers, for example, these emissions constitute the lion’s share of their total GHG emissions through the thousands of products, especially animal-based products, in their assortment. Through the use of Donau Soja / Europe Soya certified soya beans, companies that produce or sell animal-based products, can significantly reduce the emissions along their supply chain.
Find out how your company can significantly reduce the emissions along their supply chain through the use of Donau Soja / Europe Soya certified soya beans.
Life-Cycle-Assessment (LCA) Studies
In the production of animal-based products, relevant amounts of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions already emerge during animal feed production. Therefore, the choice of responsibly produced animal feed is important to reduce the carbon footprint of animal-based products. Over the past years, Donau Soja has commissioned several studies to investigate how using Donau Soja / Europe Soya-certified soya impacts the carbon footprint of food and feed products. These studies have shown that switching to Donau Soja / Europe Soya certified soya feed significantly reduces emissions by up to 40% in animal-based products.
Get to know the possibilities and advantages of using Donau Soja / Europe soya certified soya beans along the value chain, with the help of our studies.
Life-Cycle-Assessment (LCA) Databases and Tools
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) tools are used to evaluate the environmental impact of a product, process, or service throughout its entire life cycle. Donau Soja discloses LCA datasets on the environmental impact of Donau Soja / Europe Soya certified soya beans and makes them available in LCA databases and calculation tools. Thereby aiming to facilitate the transition to a sustainable, safe and European value chain.

Regional Climate Partnership
Reducing food miles and strengthening regional production are important aspects to tackle climate change. With Donau Soja, soya value chains get a domestic, a regional, a European face. Regional climate partnerships promote regional players and regional animal feed cycles. They offer local businesses the opportunity to build up new income sources and strengthen domestic agriculture with benefits for farmers, producers, consumers and the climate..
