15 World leaders signed 17 sustainability goals which in 2015 were adopted as the UN's global sustainable development goals. Semper strives to actively contribute to a sustainable society and in our sustainability initiatives we contribute to several of the goals. SEMPER AND THE UN GLOBAL GOALS Zero hunger Since we produce food, there is an awareness in all of our employees to keep food waste as low as possible. We are careful with everything in our own value chain and constantly try to avoid materials being wasted in our production. We also have an on-going collaboration with The Food Mission, Stockholm City Mission, to which we donate food. We also contribute to other activities instead of throwing away food. Good health and well-being We support clinical studies in both the infant and toddler area, which drive nutrition research forward. Based on the results of the OTIS study, we have developed more sustainable and healthy foods for the young children. To keep us updated on celiac disease and gluten-free products, we stay informed on research in the field and support research projects related to gluten-free foods. In order to improve well-being for one of our consumer groups, we have expanded our labelling of gluten-free foods. Life on land Through our continued membership and support of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in Götene, we want to protect biodiversity and promote a healthy ecosystem. Semper is part of Hero Group’s Bee Careful program that protects pollinators through several activities. Responsible consumption and production Semper's mission is to delight consumers by conserving the goodness of nature. A fundamental part of our mission is the transition to a more sustainable production. We work continuously to integrate our sustainability work in our business. During the year, we have been focusing especially on reducing food waste. Climate action Scientific studies have shown that mankind has affected greenhouse gas emissions since the time of industrialisation. Agriculture and food production currently accounts for about 25 % of global emissions. As a manufacturer of food, we also take responsibility for combating climate change. For example, in our energy-intensive production process, we have shifted from fossil to renewable energy sources.
