Yeah, We're CO2-Neutral!
Environmental and climate protection form part of our corporate responsibility.
At PURE SKIN FOOD only organically certified, purely plant-based raw materials are used. In doing so, we have set a new standard of quality within the beauty industry. In contrast to conventional farming, organic agriculture emits 30% less CO2 emissions on average (Source: BOKU). Another milestone has been reached in achieving a neutral carbon footprint when it comes to our production processes, which pleases us tremendously.
There is No Planet B - Act Now
Due to shockingly increasing amounts of CO2 emissions and exploitation of the planet's resources, the Earth Overshoot Day (the date when humanity’s demand for ecological resources and services in a given year exceeds what Earth can regenerate in that year) is occurring even earlier this year. It is our joint vision, both that of our company NoPlant B LLC and the brand that is PURE SKIN FOOD, to provide holistic and sustainable alternatives, thinking ahead of the times and change the status quo of the industry.
Our 3 Pillars for Climate Neutrality
Our climate footprint was calculated by Joanneum Research. We do our best to avoid CO2 emissions wherever possible and reduce these figures where prevention is not possible. The CO2 emissions that are produced are compensated through eco-social, UNO-certified products operated by Regreen.
In order to achieve our climate neutrality goals we have developed a sustainability strategy based on our 3 pillars:
The best CO2 emissions are the ones that are not produced at all, therefore, we strive to reduce our carbon footprint. With our newly constructed, high energy efficiency production facility and warehouse as well as the use of green electricity sourced from our photovoltaic system we are well on track. The partners that we choose to cooperate with are selected based on their sustainability and eco-friendly production practices.
We search for ways to reduce CO2 emission where they cannot be avoided and do our best to keep these emissions to a minimum:
- Sustainable construction with high energy efficiency and the use of renewable materials such as wood
- Devices with the highest energy efficiency
- Yearly public transports tickets for members of staff
- Between 60 to 100% of the heating and cooling for our sites are covered by a biogas
- Plastic-free, environmentally friendly shipping materials with artificial glue-free adhesion
- Conscientious recycling of waste and recyclables
- Largely local and organic produced used to prepare the food for the staff
Our CO2 emissions are offset via ReGreen through a variety of products based in India, Bangladesh and Peru aiming to reduce greenhouse gases. All the projects that we are involved in are UN-certified which guarantees the avoidance of climate-damaging greenhouse gases. We support the following 3 projects:
Renewable Energy in India
By supporting this project in Maharashtra where wind turbines are built, we are enabling clean energy in India. The energy generated by the wind turbines substitutes energy that otherwise would come from a coal-powered plant. Thus, the amount of coal burned is decreased and the construction of new coal-powered plants is prevented.
- Clean, alternate energy is generated.
Clean Drinking Water in Bangladesh
WADI is a solar-powered UV-measurement device that serves as an indicator for the process of solar water disinfection, providing households, schools and communities with access to safe water. WADI eliminates the energy-intensive boil-off of drinking water using firewood by indicating when bacteria found in the water have been killed through UV radiation.
- For every compensated ton of CO2 5 people are being provided with clean drinking water in Bangladesh.
Forest Protection & Reforestation in Peru
The project supports farmers with the transition to sustainable cocoa production, restoring degraded land and reducing deforestation and its negative impacts in the process. The effort helps to protect endangered species and guarantees the sustainable livelihood of indigenous people being able to live their unique way of life.
- Planting new trees, the protection of more than 500 000 hectares of forest, job creation and the protection of endangered species.
Now is the time to act and become active in implementing climate protection goals. Each one of us can be a contribution to climate change. We care, do you?
