AUSTRALIA, Oakleigh, Vic. On 1 December 2018, Flinders + Co became the first meat company in Australia to fully offset all carbon emissions from not only their business, but every kilogram of meat they sell.
This project forms part of their “Cultivate Better” framework. This framework is designed to deliver on their company mission – to help cultivate a better food world. They want to show that being carbon neutral doesn’t need to be some far away goal in the future – it can be achieved now.
The company engaged the Carbon Reduction Institute who analysed their business in Melbourne, and the supply chain of each main product line that we sell, in order to calculate an accurate total carbon footprint. To start, they reduced the carbon emissions from things like fuel and electricity as much as possible. Then, the company invested in a number of carbon offset projects to help reduce net emissions to zero.
