We are Audu. And we love dairy products.

Sustainability!

For us, sustainability means striving to constantly offer products with a lower CO2 footprint.

We work with Carbon Cloud, an independent company that helps calculate, understand, share and reduce CO2 footprints. Below you can see our carbon footprint and what we compare ourselves to and link to Carbon Cloud's calculations.

So how do we make a difference?

At Audu, we want to make it easier for you. On average, a Dane emits 17 tons of CO2 per year. According to the UN’s climate panel, we need to reduce this to 2-3 tons of CO2 per global citizen by 2050. So how do we achieve this, and where do we even start? At Audu, we want to make it easier to eat climate-wisely. That’s why we have calculated the full CO2 footprint of our products in collaboration with Carbon Cloud, displayed it on the packaging, and compared it to their traditional counterparts.

This way, you can see exactly how big a difference you make when you choose a product from Audu..

At Audu, we love cheese, but we are not at all bound by tradition. That’s why we combine milk and cheese with wonderful ingredients from the plant kingdom to lower the carbon footprint. It makes perfect sense to our ears. We typically use legumes which are a good source of protein, coconut oil and potato starch in small quantities.

What is your CO2 footprint?

It is difficult to relate to one’s personal CO2 footprint. All use of energy and consumption of resources emits CO2 both directly and indirectly. 

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) increases the level of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and causes global warming and climate change. If we do not reduce CO2, the planet is projected to become 3 degrees warmer towards the year 2100. We are already seeing the signs of a warmer planet with record temperatures, heat waves, drought and forest fires.

The Paris Agreement is a commitment made by the countries of the world to do what’s necessary so the global temperature will not increase by more than 1.5 degrees Celsius compared to 1990 levels. This requires a reduction in total CO2 emissions by 45% compared to today.

25% of all CO2 emissions are related to food production. At Audu, we believe that it is possible to make super delicious and nutritious products by mixing milk parts from the cow with plant parts. Every bite makes a difference, but it doesn’t have to taste bad because of that. On the contrary.

Therefore, Audu’s goal is to have at least a CO2 footprint that is 40% lower than similar products made from just cow’s milk.

We have chosen to work with CarbonCloud, an independent body that provides CO2 calculations using a scientific methodology. We will always link our carbon declarations to CarbonCloud or another independent 3rd party.
All aspects of the product’s manufacturing are factored into its CO2 impact. This includes feed, agriculture, production and transportation/storage in the entire value chain.
