Carbon offset projects
Located near the Port of Hamburg, the family-run Port International has been trading in fruit and vegetables for 140 years. The company was one of the first to introduce organic and fair trade bananas to Europe. This shows how relevant sustainability has been and still is. In 2017, the Port International became climate neutral and added climate neutral strawberries to its portfolio.
Today, Port International offers not only climate neutral strawberries, but also bananas, blueberries, leaf clementines and green asparagus under the BE CLIMATE brand. The first retailer to put climate neutral products on the shelves was a retail chain in Belgium right from the start of BE CLIMATE, followed by a German wholesale market supplier. In future, Port plans to extend the climate neutral premium brand to all areas of the product range.
Similar to what we did with the strawberries in 2017, we at ClimatePartner calculated the carbon footprint of the products, taking into account cultivation, packaging and transport. To offset all emissions and make the fruit climate neutral, Port International supports two of our carbon offset projects: a project for clean drinking water in Cambodia and a forest conservation project in Peru.
Via the label "climate neutral" and a QR code, consumers can identify the climate neutral fruit and vegetables in retail shops and track the carbon offset.
