Plant-based food helps reduce humans’ impact on the climate. But our commitment to carbon neutrality doesn’t stop with our food.
Carbon neutral means that you reduce as much carbon emissions as you produce to create net zero carbon output. So, what does that mean for a food company like us? It means that we’ve reduced as much of our emissions as we currently can, plus we have invested in local environmental projects that also reduce emissions on their own. The emissions that these projects reduce is equal to our remaining emissions. Therefore, we are carbon neutral.
We’re reducing gas emissions and neutralizing our remaining unavoidable emissions. By 2025, we aim to reduce our environmental footprint by 50% and our absolute carbon emissions by 30% by 2030.
As part of the Greenleaf Foods family, LightLife® is joined in the investment of verified projects that eliminate carbon emissions, including Brady I, St. Leon Wind Energy, and Massachusetts Tri-City Forestry.
Improving Our Workplace
In our pursuit to achieve a zero-carbon footprint, we are continually working on projects that reduce our environmental footprint by focusing on electricity, natural gas, water, and solid waste.
