Carbon Footprint Assessment

Approach and Boundaries

Emission Scopes

the guidelines of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, the following direct and indirect production and product-flow related parameters were assessed and included into the calculation:

Applying Greenhouse Gas Protocol, the various emissions are assigned to the Scope’s 1, 2 and 3 as follows:

· Scope 1: Emissions include the direct GHG emissions of a product. These emissions arise directly from the production process.

· Scope 2: Emissions include indirect GHG emissions of the product. In this assessment, the indirect GHG emissions include the emissions in relation to electricity purchased, used at farm level and for packing, storage and other activities at the growers facilities.

· Scope 3: Emissions include other indirect GHG emissions of the product. These emissions arise from different additives and processes, which are important to produce the product. In this assessment, other indirect GHG emissions include emissions related to outsourced activities.

Benchmarking and Reporting

You can benchmark your emission with other companies and with international standards to know what is the status of your company.

You can benchmark with:

- product kgco2e

- office space m2

- employee kgco2e/employee


Carbon Offsetting

Knowing in detail how much emission a product, a company, or an event causes offers the customer the possible market the product, the company, or the event in question as ‘climate neutral’, by using different kind of offsetting mechanism TUV-Nord and Gold Standard. We can provide whatever the customer wants in terms of product / company / event label – an ecological and commercial opportunity mitigating climate change whilst capitalizing on changing consumer expectations. Knowing this, these emissions can easily be offset through the purchase of carbon credits. These carbon credits are generated through projects that avoid CO2e emissions. We offer UNFCCC verified emission reduction rights (carbon credits).
