In Ireland, Danone’s facility in Wexford is the first baby formula production site in the world to be certified carbon neutral by the Carbon Trust, an independent global climate change and sustainability consultancy. This is a step towards achieving Danone’s goal of zero net carbon emissions by 2050. Danone Wexford employs 350 people. Danone employs a total of almost 700 people in Ireland. Wexford produces leading brands for consumers in 41 countries around the world. The plant sources 100 percent renewable electricity and uses a biomass boiler powered by sustainable wood fuels. This has resulted in 10.000 tons of CO2 savings compared to the plant’s emissions in 2010, representing a 70% reduction in its direct carbon footprint, whilst doubling its production volumes since then. Since the end of 2019 the remaining direct carbon emissions of the plant have been fully offset with Gold Standard certificates. All waste from production processes or packaging materials is recovered.
