Beneficially using waste

Beneficially using waste

Most of our waste is organic matter that comes from the corn wet milling process. In most cases, it can be used beneficially, particularly as nutrients for the animals and land of local farms.

By 2030, 100% of our waste will be beneficially used, with an ambition to reach 75% by 2025.

How we’re tracking against our targets

92% of waste beneficially used (target: 75% by 2025)*
