Molino Pordenone 2030


Capture & Communicate

capture excess emissions by involving people

After measuring the CO2 emissions generated by producing soft wheat flour and certifying the results through EPD, we are committing to act on the one hand to reduce them, and on the other to support forestry projects that capture excess emissions.
In order to make our flour Climate Positive, the medium-term goal is to reduce and absorb all emissions generated by internal production by 2030, while the long-term goal is to reduce and absorb emissions from the entire supply chain, capturing more CO2 by 2050 than is emitted to produce our soft wheat flour each year.

Obiettivo Molino

What does capturing CO2 emissions mean for Molino Pordenone?

For us, capturing CO2 emissions means supporting forest managers who responsibly look after their forests.
Our support finances forest improvement measures that increase the CO2 storage of forests and, depending on the project, enhance water and subsoil management, rather than their capacity to improve habitats for biodiversity.

What is Molino Pordenone doing to mitigate climate change?

Starting in 2022, Molino Pordenone is supporting a series of projects each year, mostly in FSC®-certified forests aimed at protecting and improving their Ecosystem Services, i.e. those environmental values that forests give to people and the planet. FSC (Forest Stewardship Council®) is an international non-profit organisation that has been promoting responsible forest management for more than 25 years.
Molino Pordenone is taking on this commitment with WOWnature®, a platform that allows us to engage the community and the people connected to our company and is a way of raising awareness of urgent and topical issues such as environmental protection among our stakeholders. This also enables us to promote a scientific, concrete and in-depth approach in a virtuous process of cultural and social education and transformation.

FSC WOWnature

Molino Pordenone has chosen to adopt the MARC approach (Measure, Avoid, Risks, Capture & Communicate) to measure and reduce its impacts: to neutralise the emissions we cannot currently eliminate, we have decided to support the best forest managers to help them pursue activities with measurable and verifiable positive impacts.


Capture projects
supported by Molino Pordenone

The projects in the CAPTURE phase are carefully selected on the basis of their positive impact on local communities, ecosystems and the territory, also giving importance to their innovative and virtuous character.
Most of forests we support are FSC® certified, the responsible Forest Stewardship certification that ensures that a forest or forest plantation is managed according to strict environmental, social and economic standards.

In 2022, the Bosco Sacile and Bioclima Lombardia projects enabled Molino Pordenone to capture 30% of residual emissions from milling.

2023 | Lio Piccolo
Lio piccolo

The Venice lagoon is an area particularly sensitive to climate change. In Lio Piccolo, near the municipality of Cavallino Treporti, action is being taken to safeguard the environment the ancient tradition of fishing valleys in an area of 15 hectares.


As part of the long-term strategy MOLINO2030 MACINAZIONE CLIMATE POSITIVE, we are contributing to the project by growing together with WOWnature 100 new trees for Molino Pordenone's 100th anniversary. We chose this project because we share its philosophy; in fact, ancient fish valleys represent a way of producing food that is sustainable, animal-friendly and regenerative of the surrounding environment. Just as these trees will need time to grow, Molino Pordenone has set challenging 2030 and 2050 goals for zero environmental impact food production, because sustainability is a path, not a finish line.

The project aims to restore and protect the ecosystem and biodiversity typical of the fishing valleys of the Venetian lagoon. The intervention includes the planting of local species to replenish typical trees, preserving and consolidating the banks.

The trees counter erosion, preventing the destruction of the banks by tidal action. At the same time, they support the life of fish fauna, which includes bream, sea bass, boseghe, caustelli, verzelate and lotregani.

Consolidation of the banks preserves water depth, ensuring the establishment of overwintering habitats for fish. In addition, tree canopies slow cold air currents by reducing water cooling. In summer, on the other hand, they create shaded areas for fish by mitigating excessive heat.

The intervention area, which consists of two communicating habitats, one freshwater and one saltwater, also intends to provide shelter for other animal species that already frequent the lagoon: ducks, cormorants, herons, egrets, storks, ibis, flamingos, ospreys, marsh harriers, curlews and shelducks.
