Looking after water

At our ABITEC Corp Janesville site, we invested in a distributed control system to reduce the water needed to cool our chemical reactors. It works by controlling the contact time to allow more heat to be absorbed by the water. This major water conservation project has contributed to a 32% reduction of water entering the site in 2023.  

Managing waste

Protecting our planet isn’t only about reducing what we take from it — it’s also about what we put back. We increased our recycling rates by 3% between 2022 and 2023 and....

Reducing emissions

At ABITEC, we recognise the role we must play in reducing the emissions from our operations and the influence we can have in emission reductions across our value chain. We monitor our scopes 1 and 2 emissions and those from third-party transport in our value chain.

Responsible sourcing

As part of an international collection of companies of ABFI, robust internal policies guide our sourcing practices. We also hold ourselves to high international and third-party standards, using third-party guidance. For instance, we source a small amount of palm-related raw materials for a limited number of products and do so responsibly as a proud member of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) membership.

As part of our Sedex membership, we are SMETA audited to their stringent 4-Pillar standard, which focuses on working conditions and environmental performance within our direct business and supply chain.
