About Cool Beans

Cool Beans was built around sustainability and wellness. Our burritos are 100% plant-based and carry about 92% less GHGs (249 gCO2e) than the leading steak and cheese burrito (2,362 gCO2e). Our hero is the mighty bean which sequesters carbon into the soil and also provides a lot of great fiber for gut health. Finally we built plant diversity into our products to foster a regenerative agricultural system. We have 27 different plants in our first 5 burrito flavors. Plant diversity is great for our gut, great for the soil, and great for planetary biodiversity.

01 Measure

Cool Beans measured Scope 1, 2 and 3 cradle-to-customer emissions following categories and approaches established in the Climate Neutral standards.

02 Offset

Cool Beans invested in projects outside of their value chain to compensate for all of their measured carbon emissions. This step supports their climate neutrality designation, and enables Cool Beans to take responsibility for historical emissions that can’t be reduced.

03 Reduce

Cool Beans is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

What is Climate Neutrality

A state in which human activities result in no net effect on the climate system. Requires balancing of residual greenhouse gas emissions with reductions or removals. All Climate Neutral Certified brands must meet climate neutrality standards for measuring, offsetting, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from making and delivering products and services.
