Carbon offset projects
December 10, 2020
The Eckes-Granini Group with all its subsidiaries will operate climate neutral throughout Europe as of January 1, 2021.
Europe-wide, the Group emitted 43,082 tons of carbon into the atmosphere in 2019 – caused, among other things, by energy and heating, waste processing, employee commuting and business trips. This is the result of a profound analysis of the companies’ carbon footprint in cooperation with ClimatePartner. The solution provider of climate action for companies has been supporting the leading supplier of fruit juices and fruit beverages since this year.
With regard to the fight against climate change, the Eckes-Granini Group strives for zero greenhouse gas emissions. In order to get much closer to this overall goal, the Group will offset 43,000 tons carbon emissions of its direct business activities through a carbon offset project conducted by ClimatePartner in Portel, Brazil. Thereby, Eckes-Granini ensures the protection of 17,872 hectares of forest in the Amazon region per year.
"We are very proud that all Eckes-Granini subsidiaries will carry the ClimatePartner label 'Climate Neutral Company'," emphasizes Fabien Labeta, Director Product Supply and Supply Chain at Eckes-Granini. "Our declared goal is to make a measurable contribution to the fight against climate change. In cooperation with ClimatePartner, we’ll continuously work towards the implementation of increasingly efficient and comprehensive climate protection measures in the future.”
