Context

For the management of GHG emissions. monthly operational data is collected from Minerva Foods’ businesses via an automated tool and with the support of a specialized consultancy. GHG emissions and the decarbonization plan are managed by the Sustainability area. reporting to the Sustainability Commission and the Sustainability and Innovation Advisory Board.
Within Scope 1. direct emissions from Minerva Foods’ operations. the largest sources of emissions are linked to Effluent Treatment Stations (ETEs) at operating units in South America and Boilers in Colombia and Argentina. due to the fuels used. The increase in Scope 1 emissions occurred through the integration of feedlot and live cattle export farms in Brazil to the inventory. The emission sources included are related to factors such as enteric fermentation and the management of animal waste during their stay on the farms and the use of fertilizers on pastures.
Regarding Scope 2. as previously mentioned. since 2020 Minerva Foods has acquired Renewable Energy Certificates (I-RECs). in partnership with the subsidiary Minerva Energia and has neutralized Scope 2 emissions from operations in all countries. with the exception of Paraguay. where emissions are already zero due to the local energy matrix being composed only of renewable sources and not emitting GHGs in the generation of electricity.
In addition. the Company has been improving the accounting of its direct and indirect GHG emissions in scope 3 each year. thus creating a complete GHG management of its Value Chain and adding other relevant categories to those that were previously reported. Another important alteration in the Company’s emissions inventory during the year was the improvement of the methodology for calculating enteric fermentation and management of waste from animals purchased in Brazil (scope 3). through technical studies carried out. The new methodology takes into account the age of the cattle and the period they remain in each type of creation (confinement. semi-confinement. pasture and confinement to pasture). according to emission factors from the IV Brazilian Inventory of Anthropogenic Emissions and Removals of Greenhouse Gases from the Ministry of Science. Technology. Innovation and Communications (2020).

Intensity of greenhouse gas emissions

2020 2021 2022
Net Emissions Intensity (tCO2e/ton finished product) 0.1617 0.1742 0.1750

Context

GHG emissions intensity was calculated by considering the total emissions of Scopes 1 and 2 (production of fresh meat. processed products. slaughter by-products and biodiesel) in relation to the total finished production (TFP) of the slaughtering and deboning units. which represent 99.6% of the Company’s emissions. GHG emissions from confinement facilities and live cattle exports were excluded due to the process of establishing a baseline for the GHG emissions intensity indicator.

Context

Company has improved the reporting of its direct and indirect (value chain) GHG emissions each year. Scope 3 reporting began in 2021 for Category 1 –Purchased goods and services (enteric fermentation of purchased animals). Category 4 – Transportation and distribution (upstream). Category 5 – Waste generated in operations. Category 6 – Business travel and Category 7 – Employee commute (home-work). This year. the Company carried out a Scope 3 materiality study with the help of a specialized consulting firm. resulting in a complete GHG management of its value chain. In addition to the categories previously reported (see above). the following categories have been included in the GHG inventory for the Brazilian units: 1 – Purchased goods and services (items considered relevant in the materiality study). Category 3 – Fuel and energy not included in Scopes 1 and 2. Category 9 – Downstream transportation and distribution (transportation of green leather to tanneries providing services to Minerva Leather). Category 10 – Processing of sold products and Category 12 – Final treatment of sold products (Minerva Foods product packaging). The new categories. with the exception of categories 3 and 9 which have already been reported. will be included in the inventory for units in Latam and Australia next year.
During the year. a further significant change to the Company’s emissions inventory resulted from an improvement in the methodology for calculating enteric fermentation and waste management from animals purchased in Brazil (Scope 3). based on technological studies undertaken. The new methodology accounts for the age of the cattle and the length of time spent at each type of holding (confinement. semi-confinement. pasture and confinement to pasture). in line with the emission factors from the IV Brazilian Inventory of Anthropogenic Emissions and Removals of Greenhouse Gases of the Ministry of Science. Technology. Innovation and Communications (2020).

Context

Minerva Foods manages its GHG emissions through data collection of its operations on a monthly basis using an automated tool with the support of a specialized consulting firm. The Sustainability department manages the GHG emissions and the decarbonization plan, submitting reports to the Sustainability Commission and the Sustainability and Innovation Advisory Board.
The largest sources of emissions within Scope 1 direct emissions from Minerva Foods’ operations originate from: Effluent Treatment Stations (ETEs) at operating units in South America; and Boilers in Colombia and Argentina, due to the fuels used. Opportunities with the potential to reduce these emissions have been identified based on decarbonization studies. These include projects to modernize effluent treatment to reduce emissions, with the potential to generate and market carbon credits in partnership with MyCarbon.

Context

Minerva Foods manages its GHG emissions through data collection of its operations on a monthly basis using an automated tool with the support of a specialized consulting firm. The Sustainability department manages the GHG emissions and the decarbonization plan, submitting reports to the Sustainability Commission and the Sustainability and Innovation Advisory Board.
With respect to Scope 2, as previously mentioned, Minerva Foods, in partnership with the subsidiary Minerva Energia has been purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (I-RECs) since 2020, offsetting Scope 2 emissions from its operations in all locations, with the exception of Paraguay, where emission levels are already at zero given that the local energy matrix is composed exclusively of renewable sources and does not emit GHGs in the generation of electricity.
