Our Carbon Commitment

20220901_090533 (1)-1
Our commitment is to be Carbon Neutral by 2027, reducing our carbon by 50% and meaningfully offsetting where reduction is not yet possible. We believe that climate change is the defining challenge of our generation, posing a real and systemic threat to the health of people and the planet. Food production drives 26% of global greenhouse gas emissions, it is our responsibility to use our platform and resources to confront this crisis head on. Not only do we have a duty on a human level to do our part, but the business case for a great product that also protects the planet is clear.
To truly future proof our company, we must evolve our supply network and fix our relationship to customised crop varieties and cultivate an environment that benefits the entire vertical farming agricultural ecosystem from landlords, our farmers, customers, team members, and the planet. While meaningful change cannot happen overnight, each individual decision and micro action plays an essential role in making our commitment to carbon neutrality possible. Sustainable practices can reduce a suppliers carbon footprint by 50%. In the coming months and years, we will be working diligently alongside our farmers, partners, and stakeholders to build a more climate kind food system.
In 2020, we decided to take the next step on our sustainability journey by measuring our carbon footprint and developing an actionable climate model that quantifies the total greenhouse gas emissions we produce across all touchpoints of our business. We can only have a zero carbon food system if we work with like-minded partners equally committed to decarbonizing, and support our suppliers in improving their agricultural practices. With many farms across the country in development and many more in the works, how we physically show up in our communities will have a significant and measurable impact on our road to carbon reduction. Going forward, we will work closely with our farmers to help implement industry leading strategies for carbon minimization. Additionally, we have added a formal carbon impact measurement step to our crop evaluation process.
