We’re the First Global Carbon-Neutral Meal Kit – Here’s How! September 1, 2020
At HelloFresh, we know the importance of a home-cooked meal. But we’re also mindful of our impact on the planet.
Reducing CO₂ at HelloFresh
We use pre-portioned ingredients to help eliminate food waste and our supply chain emits significantly less CO2 – we don’t have to cool, heat and light thousands of supermarket stores! But as we grow, we want to keep up our sustainability efforts.
That’s why we have committed to offsetting 100% of our company’s carbon emissions. From delivery to you, our customers, to internal operations, offices and corporate travel – we’re striving to be green to the last mile.
Offsetting Carbon Around the World
But how? We balance emissions by investing in climate protection projects, and these projects physically remove CO2 from the atmosphere.
To do this, we are working with Planetly, who help us offset our emissions and in turn support local and global green initiatives, such as planting trees for a local forestry project.
Our local initiative
We support a forestry project that is part of a nationwide initiative leading the way in afforestation and forest management. By planting over 9.5 million new trees in more than 172 new woodlands across the UK since 2006, this project has removed over 1.9 million tonnes of CO₂ from the atmosphere. And there’s more work to be done!
This news is just another step in keeping up our sustainability efforts as we grow. If you’d like to read more about HelloFresh as the First Global Carbon-Neutral Meal Kit Company, take a look on our website.
