In the fight against climate change, it’s often hard to know how you can most effectively reduce your impact. Stora Enso’s CarbonZero service helps you understand the environmental impact of your packaging and compensate for emissions that are currently difficult to avoid.
CarbonZero is a carbon offsetting service that helps you reduce your impact and reach your climate goals. We strive to make the carbon footprint of our products as small as possible, and carbon offsetting is one more tool in the fight against climate change. With CarbonZero, we compensate for currently unavoidable emissions by investing in emission reduction projects.
Help combat global warming
To help you understand the climate impact of the packaging you purchase from us, and to reach your climate goals, we provide a thorough life-cycle assessment (LCA) report. Even though our packaging has a low carbon footprint to begin with, with our CarbonZero service, you can balance out the remaining emissions through emission reduction projects developed by our compensation partner, South Pole.
Customers throughout the value chain are increasingly demanding products with lower environmental impact. With CarbonZero, you can showcase your actions: when you choose to carbon compensate your packaging from Stora Enso, you are entitled to use the official Climate Neutral Product label from South Pole in your communications and packaging design.
We calculate the fossil carbon footprint of your packaging including every stage of its life-cycle. This calculation describe how much carbon you need to offset.
Offsets made through CarbonZero support emission reduction projects developed by South Pole, and all projects meet the rigorous standards set by the Gold Standard organization.
An important part of our CarbonZero service is precise reporting. In addition to the positive environmental impact you have helped create, your company is able to certify the actions it has taken.
Good climate efforts encourage others to take action. You can promote your sustainability efforts by, for example, using the South Pole Carbon Neutral Product and Gold Standard logos in your marketing material.
Packoplock, a Swedish packaging supplier, sensed an inspiring shift in e-commerce behaviour – consumers and sellers alike started to ask for fully carbon-neutral packaging to support environmentally conscious thinking. For Packoplock, the launch of a carbon neutral packaging line was a natural step forward as their customers strive to reach their climate goals.
