CROda 2

Croda’s manufacturing site in Hull, UK has demonstrated environmental leadership since 2008, with the installation of a 2.05MW wind turbine. In 2019, this turbine generated over 16000GJ of electricity, avoiding almost 2000 tonnes of CO2 emissions associated with grid electricity. The site has a decarbonisation roadmap in place to reduce its emissions by a further 50% by 2030. The site processes rapeseed oil, from locally grown rapeseed, transported to the site by barge. Croda’s polymer additives have a carbon footprint of -1.1kgCO2/kg on leaving the factory, allowing Croda’s customers to benefit from a reduction in their upstream scope 3 emissions.
