Climate footprint, water consumption and the impact on biological diversity are particularly important areas, and we are working very hard to promote environmental improvements in the supply chain. Our entire supply chain, from cultivation, through production and packaging, to the point where the products stand on the shelves in Systembolaget’s stores, has a substantial climate impact. Working continuously to reduce our total climate impact is a given for us.
Why is this important to us?
Systembolaget’s operations are global and our supply chain is extensive. The majority of our over 700 active drinks suppliers have subcontractors and they, in turn, often have subcontractors of their own. Our indirect climate and environmental impact – from vineyards amongst others, drinks production, transportation and packaging – is, therefore, substantial.
