Carbon offset projects
The Swiss company Wander AG is known for brands like Ovomaltine, Caotina, and Jemalt. The company has put forward ambitious sustainability goals: The plan is for all Ovomaltine products made at the site in Neuenegg to be fully climate neutral by 2022. A first step addresses the packing, for that is what causes a majority of the aggregate emissions. To that end, Wander places obligations on its suppliers: In collaboration with ClimatePartner, the participating packaging manufacturers identify their carbon emissions and offset them via a certified carbon offset project for water treatment in Odisha, India. ClimatePartner’s role includes ensuring there is uniform data quality for all packaging suppliers.
All climate neutral packing at Wander AG is identified accordingly and labeled with an ID number, irrespective of the supplier it comes from. Consumers can use that ID number to track the carbon offset for individual packages: track www.climatepartner.com/12510-1801-1001
"Climate neutral packaging for our brand products is a great start for us. The expenditure is negligible, for ClimatePartner takes care of coordination with our suppliers. At the same time, we can achieve a great deal, for a large part of the emissions is indeed caused by the packaging."
