Significant Carbon Cuts on Plant-based EXBERRY Colors, GNT Reports

GNT has achieved a 22% reduction in carbon intensity at its EXBERRY factories since 2020, the company’s latest sustainability report shows. GNT, which creates EXBERRY colors from non-GMO fruit, vegetables, and plants, has set out 17 ambitious targets to optimize its environmental and social impacts over the course of the current decade.

In 2023, GNT’s total carbon footprint at its production sites in the Netherlands, Germany, and USA stood at nearly 13 thousand metric tons of CO2-equivalent emissions. This means 22% less CO2 was emitted per ton of product sold compared to the base year of 2020, taking GNT almost halfway toward its ambition to achieve a 50% reduction by 2030.

The new sustainability report reveals there was important progress in a number of other areas. GNT aims to enhance water efficiency at its factories by 20% and has already delivered a 13% improvement compared to 2020 levels. In addition, 74% of the farmers in the company’s supply chain achieved a minimum of Farm Sustainability Assessment (FSA) Silver standard. The compliance rate for GNT’s Policy on Sustainable Sourcing, meanwhile, increased from 70% to 90%.

GNT also secured an EcoVadis silver medal last year and remains the only food color supplier to have published a third-party Greenhouse Gas Verification Statement.
