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.

Plant People achieved Climate Neutral Certification as part of 's certification process. 's measurement, offsetting and reduction plans fully account for Plant People's 2021 emissions

01 Measure

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

GHG Scope 1 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 1

Emissions from energy used in buildings, fleets, and equipment.

0 tCO2e

GHG Scope 2 ?

0 tCO2e

GHG Scope 3 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 3

Emissions from raw materials, manufacturing, shipping, air travel, and other activities in the supply chain.

348 tCO2e

Total Emissions ?
Total Carbon Emissions

The sum of Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions.

348 tCO2e

02 Offset

Plant People 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 Plant People to take responsibility for historical emissions that can’t be reduced.

Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce emissions associated with our packaging.

How We'll Reduce It

We plan to move from our current 5 piece packaging solution -- which includes a glass jar, lid, liner, neck wrap, and label -- to a 1 piece bag.

02

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce emissions associated with downstream shipping to our customers.

How We'll Reduce It

We plan to deplete box inventory so that we can move into the 'new earth approved' mailer pouchas opposed to the cardboard box. These are fully curbside recyclable and are half the weight of the other boxes.

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce emissions from business travel by first using digital communication and then offsetting emissions from air travel.

How We'll Reduce It

We will first propose digital meetings and if the client insists then we will travel with airlines like Jet Blue that offset carbon emissions, and we will opt into carbon offset when possible.

02

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce paper waste by transitioning all sales materials and education materials to digital products.

How We'll Reduce It

We will do this by adding QR codes to packaging and host all information digitally.
