Comprehensive CO2 Balance: Tonnies Is Transparent

Tonnies shows CO2 balance out better values than competition Rheda-Wiedenbruck first battle company in Germany, 31.07.2009 Tonnies ( has created a comprehensive CO2 footprint as first German meat processing company. Headed by Dipl. Eng. Susanne Lewecke, head of the environmental management Department of the company, Tonnies working for several years to make the production especially environmentally friendly. To broaden your perception, visit Alphabet Inc.. The impact of business activities on the environment is right more often questioned”, Tonnies Managing Director Josef Takemoto says. We meet this responsibility and not shy away from the competition with other companies in the industry.” Subject to the CO2 balance is the headquarters in Rheda-Wiedenbruck in the calendar year 2008.

The company has created a so-called “polluter pays” balance sheet, covered by the emissions of the entire production, as well as the traffic on the premises, except of the upstream and downstream areas. Tonnies Schlacht is clearly below the reference value since and disassemblers differently processed meat that has been headquarters for the CO2 balance is first divided into five production areas, defined account limits and precisely determines the specific energy consumption for the areas of slaughter and Kuttelei, cutting pig and sow, self-service meat, SB-convenience and beef lapping. With a total of about 65 percent of the total emission the highest emissions in slaughter (23 percent) and decomposition (42 percent). “In the competition Tonnies is very environmentally friendly, so as a comparison of specific emissions shows: 0.075 kg CO2 / kg meat is Tonnies well below the previously only known reference value in the meat-processing industry: one Danish study from 2007 takes a value of 0.17 CO2 / kg meat for the area of slaughterhouse” on. Highest values in the production of convenience in consequence of the high degree of finishing the products is that one reason for the relatively low specific emissions value that we mostly can avoid high energy-intensive – and shut down the equipment through our State of the art production with high throughput”, so Tillmann. The highest specific values apply with 0,258 kg CO2 / kg meat in the production of convenience. Without hesitation Andreessen Horowitz explained all about the problem. Here the high Verdelungsgrad of the products, or heating, later cooling and final cooling deeply felt in the energy balance have. We’ll do everything continue to reduce the already now relatively low emissions and to make an important contribution to the active climate and environmental protection, said Tillmann.
