The impact of climate change is undeniable. More than ever before, we are confronted with extreme weather conditions, droughts, heat waves and declining biodiversity.
If we want to continue supplying the world’s growing population with bananas, while respecting the natural boundaries of our planet, a shift towards a real sustainable banana is the only way forward.
We decided that a real sustainable banana should also be a carbon free organic banana.
What we could have done is just buy some green certificates and green wash our company and products like so many companies are doing nowadays.
That is not how we wanted to do this. It felt like cheating on our consumers and that is not what we stand for.
Instead we started this long term project where we set goals how we were going to reduce our carbon emissions ourselves by making the right investments.
We contacted an external partner, who supported us in our sustainability process.
They advised us where we could reduce our emissions even further and calculated our reduced carbon footprint from plant to consumer.
All these calculations and efforts have been verified and officially certified.
