Carbon offset projects
Suppliers can score points with many retailers if they present a carbon certificate for their products or already offer their products in a climate neutral way: The large retail chains have mostly developed strategies to control their carbon emissions and gradually reduce them. The majority of emissions are located in the supply chain and are only within the sphere of influence of the respective trading companies to a limited extent. As a result, their suppliers are becoming more and more involved and obligated.
What ultimately counts, however, is the consumer's opinion. They are paying more and more attention to sustainability and making their purchasing decisions accordingly. Then factors such as regionality and fair trade play a central role, as does the ecological footprint. Climate neutrality is a good argument, because when consumers buy climate neutral products, they make a very simple decision for climate protection.
For climate neutral foods, we calculate the total carbon emissions throughout the life cycle of your product. This includes, for example, emissions caused by raw materials, distribution, processing and packaging of your product. In order to make the product climate neutral, these emissions are offset by the support of a recognised carbon offset project.
A long-term strategy to reduce carbon emissions and meaningful product labelling with a clear label is also important. The ClimatePartner label with Climate-ID is TÜV Austria certified and already widespread in many industries. Via the tracking URL associated with the ID, customers can track each individual carbon offset and find out about the supported carbon offset project. The tracking URL can also be integrated directly into the label as a QR code.
