Climate Change Action
vEEF Mince is certified carbon neutral by the Carbon Reduction Institute (CRI) under the NoCO2 Program. To achieve Carbon Neutral Product certification, Fënn Foods undertook the following process:
- Commissioned a Hybrid Life Cycle Assessment of vEEF Mince from CRI to quantify the carbon footprint of the product. CRI’s assessment relied upon delivery-specific data from Fënn Foods, as well as published sources of relevant data and emissions factors.
- Committed to offset the emissions associated with their vEEF Mince through the purchase of units in approved projects under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) or Gold Standard (GS) on a quarterly basis, and
- Committed to ongoing reporting and auditing of their product emissions through quarterly sales reporting.
What does Carbon Neutral Service Certification mean?
By meeting the requirements of the NoCO2 Program, vEEF Mince is certified as a Carbon Neutral Product by CRI; can be promoted and marketed as such and can display the Carbon Neutral Product Logo issued by CRI.
What Carbon Credit Projects does Fënn Foods purchase offsets from?
The China Wind Project provides a renewable, clean energy source for power generation. Wind projects partially displace electricity currently generated from grid connected conventional fossil fuel based thermal power plants, thereby reducing overall emissions. Furthermore, by reducing harmful pollutants in the atmosphere, the China Wind Project also provides public health and local environmental benefits. Such projects also provide economic benefits through increased investment in renewable energy and employment opportunities.
