We are reducing waste at Kemin locations worldwide by replacing single-use plastics with compostable, reusable and/or recyclable products. We are also actively working with suppliers to identify circular models of usable resources.
From partnering with a greenhouse gas consultant to assess the carbon footprint of our products, to collecting data on our CO2 emissions and energy and water usage from our global manufacturing facilities, we are continuously working to address climate change.
