Sustainability Is Numbers Not Words

How Are We Sustainable

How Are We Sustainable

At The Oater, sustainability is not just a buzzword; it's backed by data.
Our study demonstrates that The Oater oat drink emits only 0.15kg of CO2 per liter. This is a remarkable 57% less CO2 57% less CO2 equivalent compared to conventional packaged oat drinks and a staggering 93% less emissions than cow's milk. Here's how we achieve it:

Save Packaging

Save Packaging

With The Oater, your business can eliminate compound cartons. Our fresh oat drink doesn't need a carton. Instead, it can be dispensed directly into reusable bottles.

Reduce Emissions

Reduce Emissions

Oat drink is composed of 90% water. Since our machine utilizes the local water supply, only 10% of the weight needs to be transported for every liter produced. Less transportation means fewer emissions.

Local Manufacturing

Local Manufacturing

Our machine is fully developed and assembled in Germany, reducing the need for long transport routes to your counter. By making further adjustments, we are committed to reducing our emissions even further, with the goal of becoming 79% less polluting than conventional oat drinks. You want to see for yourself?

Read Why And How We Measure Our Impact

In today's world, terms like "sustainable" and "green" are often overused and underdefined. At The Oater, we believe that sustainability is more than just words. It's about facts and figures. We conducted a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to assess the environmental impact of every stage of our product, from raw ingredient cultivation to the location of our mixing hub. This helps us quantify our environmental impact and compare ourselves to other products on the same scale. We asked a Germany University to assess if we really put our money where our mouth is. Read their results below.

The results of the independent LCA are clear: our oat drink creates 0.15kg CO2 equivalents per liter produced. Of this amount, 42 percent can be attributed to the cultivation of the raw ingredients (oats, canola), 25 percent of emissions to packaging, 24 percent to production onsite and 9 percent to transport. This amount is 57 percent lower than conventional packaged oat drink and 93% lower than cow milk. But there are still some levers that can help us improve and reach up to 79% less emissions and that is what we are working on now.

Our Mission

Mission 1
500 Million Oat Drink Cartons Saved By 2030
With every liter of oat drink produced, you save 1 oat drink carton, since we produce on-site and dispense our oat drink into reusable bottles.
Mission 2
1 Billion kg CO2 Equivalents Saved By 2030
Our carbon footprint is already 57% lower compared to conventional oat drink. Switching to our product saves CO2 equivalents with every liter produced. The more The Oater oat drink is produced, the more we save.
