WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO OFFSET EMISSIONS?

It means that we invest in projects that reduce emissions for the same amount as what is released into the atmosphere as a result of work done at our factory and in shipping products to our consumers. The goal of our carbon offset program isn’t to eliminate all carbon emissions associated with our factory and shipping. That’s a practical impossibility. Instead, our objective is to offset our emissions associated with our factory and shipping by removing an equal amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Avocado as a company annually offsets emissions for our factory as well as shipments to you, the consumer. We use The Carbon Fund’s business calculator to determine our offset requirements each year. We then invest that amount in projects that fund conservation projects, such as reforestation and forest preservation. Forest-based carbon offset projects fight climate change by sequestering carbon dioxide emissions from the atmosphere in trees and soil and have many co-benefits for the community and local wildlife. Forest preservation creates jobs, maintains and expands wildlife habitats, protects biodiversity and improves local environmental quality.

OFFSETTING EMISSIONS

As a company with a focus on sustainability, we want to be conscious of our impact and are actively working to lighten our carbon footprint. We work to reduce our carbon footprint and are committed to offsetting what we can’t. We’re hoping our effort to fund conservation projects will make an impact. At the same time, we’re also working to analyze our full lifecycle impact, and decrease our environmental impact in other innovative ways.

WE’RE STILL IN

We believe in science. So we’ve joined nearly 3,000 mayors, county executives, governors, tribal leaders, college and university leaders, businesses, faith groups, and investors to show that we stand by the Paris Climate Agreement and are committed to meetings its urgent goals.
