We give back nature’s resources

All of the business areas in Daka Denmark have safe, sustainable and productive management of natural resources as a focal point. For almost 100 years, Daka Denmark has been guarantor for safe handling, but also sustainable recycling and recycling of by-products from agriculture and the food industry.

The future must be based on sustainability
Daka Denmarks sustainability reports based on a life cycle analysis of all Daka Denmark’s business areas. Analysis of Daka Denmark’s total activities in 2019 resulted in a net saving of 277,000 tonnes of C02eq. This is possible, as Daka Denmark provides a service of utilizing raw materials which are described as waste and which cannot be used for anything else. For raw materials, received in the form of by-products from slaughterhouses, dead animals from agriculture and food waste from private households, restaurants, supermarkets and the food industry, the CO2 footprint is thus set at zero. This calculation method is defined in accordance with the ISO 14044 standard and the international LEAP cooperation, where the CO2 footprint for production animals is attributed to the meat industry.

SDGs as guidance framework

To structure our different action fields, we use the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda, adopted by the United Nations in 2015, as orientation. The 17 goals with 169 targets are intended to serve as a guide for countries and companies around the world to create a sustainable and equitable world and to preserve natural resources in the long term.

  • Focus on energy consumption, both in connection with the day-to-day operation of production plants and in connection with major process reorganisations and new plants.
  • Set goals for energy efficiency and ensure compliance with these.
  • Secure information as well as the necessary resources are available for the energy targets to be required.
  • Comply with legal requirements and agreements.
  • Ensure continuous improvements in energy efficiency.
