Our production operation in Gronau has a totally neutral impact on the climate: we use exclusively green electricity in every area of the business and annually offset any CO2 emissions that our production causes.
As a basic principle we have made it our goal to work in the most energy-efficient way possible in every area. However, operation even of our new, energy-saving roaster does still produce emissions. We currently compensate for these primarily through Gold Standard certificates from the VisionForest reforestation project in Costa Rica.
As greenhouse gases such as CO2 spread evenly in the atmosphere, it is possible for emissions arising at our premises in Gronau to be offset by climate protection projects in other parts of the world. An external inspection and certification body ensures that for the volume of greenhouse gases generated in our production facility, a corresponding volume of CO2 gets absorbed elsewhere.
