We are the first and so far only supplier of food service packaging to offset all CO2 emissions - from the cultivation of raw materials to the delivery of our products to our customers. This means: You receive 100 percent climate-neutral articles from us!
Climate neutral packaging
To this end, we operate carbon management together with the recognised experts from ClimatePartner. This involves recording, calculating and offsetting our packaging and our operational organisation. Of course our CO2 compensations are visible to everyone.
In addition to offsetting emissions, we are continuously working to reduce our CO2 emissions. For example, we are developing new, more climate-friendly materials and are increasingly using bamboo and sugar cane fibers as well as cardboard and palm leaves.
Better living conditions through afforestation
To offset the emissions, we support an internationally recognized climate protection project in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu - the same region where our Palmware® is harvested and produced. The project helps smallholders to combat increasing deforestation through reforestation measures. The farmers retain ownership of their land and can thus earn a living from the fruits, nuts and forestry products they harvest. In India alone, the International Small Group and Tree Planting Program (TIST) project covers 671.8 hectares. In addition to the farmers, the climate also benefits from the reforestation, as tropical forests in particular store a lot of CO2.
At ClimatePartner you can find detailed information about the Climate protection project and our Palmware® supplier.
Previous successes and CO2 balance
With our previous climate protection project in the Kasigau Wildlife Corridor in Kenya, we have already been able to save over 11,000 tonnes of CO2. This is comparable to the amount of CO2 that 1000 Germans produce per year. The project protects existing dry forest and savannah on an area of approximately 200,000 hectares. By creating alternative jobs for the local population, dependence on income sources associated with deforestation is reduced. Trained rangers guard and protect the area, preserving the habitat of lions, zebras, cheetahs, elephants and a wide variety of bird species.
A great project, in which we are glad to have participated! At ClimatePartner you can find detailed information about the Climate protection project.
