Part of the Climate Track
Today, 100% of our Danish pigs, including free-range pigs and suppliers of ‘Dansk Kalv’ have joined the Climate Track, while approximately 85% of Swedish slaughter pigs and 15% of German slaughter pigs are part of the Climate Track.

We are continuing the rollout of the Climate Track to Swedish and German pig producers. We will also start enrolling Danish and Swedish dairy cattle farmers, and test and adapt Climate Track for young bulls in Sweden and Polish pigs.

A unique set-up

In the Climate Track farmers share their production and various ESG data with Danish Crown and in return, they get individual climate footprint calculations compared to a Danish Crown national average.

The collected data is incorporated in our scope 3 calculations of greenhouse gas emissions, which are therefore more precise. And this helps us reach our shared efforts to reduce the climate impact at farm level.

What is part of the Climate Track?

Pig and cattle producers under the Climate Track collect and systematically record data and information about their farms, focusing on sustainability parameters such as the following. Currently, the parameters for which a particular farmer collects data depend on their country and animal type.


  • Production efficiency
  • Feed composition
  • Production of feed crops
  • Livestock housing systems and technologies
  • Slurry handling and biogas

Social responsibility

  • Workplace assessments
  • Employment contracts

Animal welfare

  • Diseases and mortality
  • Use of antibiotics
Ida and Jacob run an integrated farm with 300 sows in Önnestad, Sweden, and supply slaughter pigs to KLS – our Swedish business unit. Over the years, they have made several changes including producing their own feeds and building energy efficient stables made partly from recycled, durable materials. These improvements have led to an improved pig production. Hence, it was also a natural next step for the couple to join the Climate Track in early 2022.

Stepwise rollout

In 2022/23, we also continued the roll out of the Climate Track with focus on Swedish and German pig suppliers, and we continued to collaborate with relevant industry players in research projects on climate solutions of tomorrow.

Going forward

We will continue to enrol the Swedish and German pig farmers in the Climate Track together with other animal types and countries, and we will continue the development and implementation of roadmaps to meet scope 3 emissions reduction targets.
