Muntons is keenly focused on sustainable production centring our efforts around carbon footprinting and we take the lead in promoting our ethos to both suppliers and customers. We promote low carbon farming with a target of reducing the carbon footprint of farming cereals by at least 50 – that’s what we call Practical Sustainability.
Muntons is the first maltster to develop a bespoke farming carbon footprint calculator and the first to make the pledge that all of our malt will be low carbon within 5 years.
Muntons has an established record of not fearing to tread where others hold back in promoting sustainability in malting. Our carbon footprint and environmental credentials have been publicly scrutinised and verified and we are convinced that every green initiative has both an environmental and financial payback when properly planned. We are proud to champion the green agenda and generate a much bigger impact by enabling our business to flourish and to encourage the supply chain to become ever more sustainable.
Sustainability is the common objective that links all aspects of Muntons business activities. Our objective is to minimise the impact of our business activity on the environment wherever possible. This is achieved by talking with our suppliers to ensure that they likewise take their corporate social responsibility seriously. Muntons has an underlying and long-standing commitment based on the belief that business can be both profitable and responsible. This is achieved by building long-lasting relationships with our employees, across the supply chain and with the local community.
Our employees are free to join a trade union. We have good relations with our main unions and provide adequate facilities for them to meet and administer their business on site.
