Carbon neutral moulded fibre egg packaging from Hartmann
Organic, free range or barn farming: there are hardly any other food products where consumers are as well informed about product quality and ecological criteria as with eggs. Those who take these aspects seriously also pay more and more attention to the packaging.
Hartmann egg packaging is made of recycled paper and is biodegradable. However, in protecting the environment and climate Hartmann goes even further. In 2013, it was the first packaging manufacturer in the egg industry to introduce carbon neutral packaging. Since then, the company has launched several million carbon neutral egg cartons together with its customers.
The reduction of carbon emissions in the production process is a big step towards carbon neutrality. Hartmann reduces harmful emissions as far as possible. Unabated emissions are calculated by ClimatePartner on a customer-specific basis and are offset by supporting certified projects. Hartmann is currently participating in the Pará forest protection project in Brazil. The rainforest has an area of over 86,000 hectares and can store 145,000 tonnes of CO2 per year. Furthermore, this project also helps to support local communities, preserve biodiversity and create jobs
The brand name Hartmann is usually not written on the packaging - but you can recognize the egg cartons by the "carbon neutral" label from ClimatePartner. Next time in the supermarket, do not only take a look at the quality information of the eggs, but also at the packaging label.
"We are proud that with the support of our customers we have been able to offset more than 14,800 tonnes of CO2 in the last seven years."
