What is Green & Blacks doing to help fight climate change?
The 'Green' beginnings of Green & Black's have always been central to the way we operate. All G&B’s products are certified as organic by The Soil Association (UK) and this includes checking that our ingredients are grown in environmentally sustainable ways. For example, nitrogen fertilisers which are carbon intensive are not used on organically grown ingredients. We also believe that protecting and nurturing rainforests is important and since 2003, we have planted one million cocoa trees in Belize – which has been good for cocoa farmers and the environment
We also believe that environmental awareness and action begins at home, and in our office we make every effort to minimise our carbon output. However, we know that we can go even further. We have been calculating our carbon footprint to see where we can improve and later this year we will start manufacturing the products we sell in the USA and Canada in North America instead of Europe in order to reduce our footprint. We are also constantly looking at ways of improving our packaging to reduce our impact on the environment.
