We are excited to announce that every order placed on our site its carbon emissions is offset through a partnership with selected organisations.
CO2 accounts for 95% of the climate impact from burning fossil fuels for transportation and now we are able to reduce the impact of each order placed on beanbros.co.
We have adopted carbon offsets as a tactic that is part of a larger strategy to reduce direct emissions as much as possible. Offsets are not a replacement for taking actions to reduce our carbon footprint it is to compensate for emissions we can’t currently avoid.
What are carbon offsets?
A carbon offset reduces the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere so that increased greenhouse gases elsewhere have a net impact of 0. For example, suppose a truck releases 150 g of CO2 in one mile, and actions to preserve a forest remove 150 g of CO2 from the atmosphere. If you purchase one carbon offset that supports forest preservation for each mile that a truck travels, then the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere remain the same.
Am I eligible to use Offset to offset my shipments?
Every oder will be offset made via our online store.
How much does it cost to offset my shipments?
It is Free - no add on is needed. It is included in your order
How much of my business’s impact am I actually offsetting?
Currently, we focuses on addressing only emissions from shipping-related transportation.
What project does Offset currently fund?
Offset is currently funding the Jarí Para REDD+ Avoided Unplanned Deforestation project with Pachama. This is a Verified Carbon Standard certified project that will be verified by Pachama using their monitoring technology. The charges from Offset go towards protecting the existing forest, improving the biomass through better forest management practices, and verifying the progress of the project.
New Partnership with Tree Nation from 2021
We start 2021 by planting trees. For that, we teamed up with Tree-Nation. Tree-Nation is an organisation helping us compensate for our CO2 emissions by reforesting the world. So far, they’ve planted more than 4 million trees around the globe. This equates to 1.2 million tonnes of CO2 compensated. So, we joined the Tree-Nation!
We commit to offset 40 tons of CO2 / month in addition to our other partnerships, which means with our partnerships with Jarí Para REDD+ and Tree-Nation, our entire CO2 emissions are 100% have been offset.
